Activate Live is a free virtual offering that brings together digital leaders, practitioners and thinkers from coast to coast to coast to learn, strategize, and build long term progressive digital capacity and power.

This event is for progressive digital practitioners. You might be a digital director at an advocacy organization, a content writer at a political party, an organizer at a labour union, or a senior leader who tries to bring all these pieces together. You might work with clients to deliver great digital campaigns, or build new technology.

Please arrive on time, and plan to stay for the full session if possible. These gatherings will take place on Zoom. A link will be emailed to all registered participants upon completion of your registration (please double-check your spam folder for this email). We look forward to seeing you online!
