Is your organization resistant to building an online program? Have you suggested delving into online organizing only to be met with a chorus “Our members aren’t on Facebook,” or “Our folks don’t use email?” Then you’re in good company! Pretty much every organization that uses the internet as a tool for organizing low income communities of color had to overcome the myth of the digital divide at some point. Join experienced organizers for a spirited panel discussion. One part strategy session, one part group therapy; if your ushering the internet age into your organization, than this is the training for you.
