Twitter. Facebook. Tumblr. YouTube. ThingLink. There are so many social media environments and so many ways you can create your own media now — with limited time, how can we create new media and use social media platforms to advance social justice?
Join us for an evening conversation with other NY social justice communicators and learn about the most effective tools for making use of new media and social media. We’ve got several folks lined up to share tools and resources:
- Julian Liu (Communities United for Police Reform)
- Dana Balicki (NYC-based Communications Consultant)
- Laurie Ignacio (NYC-based Communications Consultant)
When you RSVP below, you can offer a five-minute skills-share as well.
We’ll serve a light meal starting at 6 PM, then start the skills-share at 6:30. We’ll be hosted by Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ) at their office: 666 Broadway, Fifth Floor conference room (here’s a map). This event is free, but please RSVP using the form below so that we can plan appropriately.
Who is this skills-share for? PCN supports emerging/established communicators, and organizers interested in building their social justice communications skills. We are particularly interested in communications that supports organizing at the intersections of oppression: for example, work that takes on racial justice and the environment, or gender justice and economic justice. There’s no cost to be part of the PCN NYC Chapter, as long as you are interested in supporting other communicators/organizers as well as learning.
