Online organizing 201: Using the Internet to augment offline activism
Feminists are utilizing the internet to leverage offline activism. This is especially true for marginalized groups, as exemplified by the globally viral #solidarityisforwhitewomencampaign hashtag. The first virtual chapter of NOW, Young Feminists and Allies, is enjoying the benefits of online organizing with members from across the nation. Its Twitter, completely volunteer run, has almost 10,000 followers, with people like Senator Kristen Gillibrand following and retweeting. The chapter has hosted successful Tweet chats and a Google Hangout, as well as been mentioned on various media outlets. This workshop will discuss the successful campaigns and online tools feminists can use.
