Everything from revolutions to the environment and health is shaped by how we connect, document, and change our lives. Join our interactive discussion with community organizers and practitioners in the field of new media. Learn practical tips and tools about implementing digital and social media for organizations and causes you care about. Explore the challenges to the integration of media activism and direct civic engagement. At the reception following, mingle with people from a cross-section of fields and endeavors.
