Topic: Rethinking Movement Building
Technology, access to information (and misinformation) and the changing scale of communications have definitely played a role in igniting social change and affected the way we build movements. Amid all these changes, what’s the role of nonprofit organizations? This panel will discuss the larger picture of movement building, nonprofit organizations, and what we can learn about recent events that change what we do and how we interact with the world we’re trying to impact. With panelists representing various areas of experience and knowledge, discussion will include community organizing, movement building, and the role you and your organization can play in supporting social change.
