New Weekly Series on E-Advocacy

By Rachel L. West, MSW, LMSW
The Political Social Worker

Some of you may have noticed I have been posting a lot lately on e-advocacy  (aka online advocacy, digital campaigning, etc, etc).  This is a topic I have been trying to learn more about over the past year and I believe it is important for social workers, because we are change agents, to learn about this topic.  Going forward, Tuesdays will be a day that I’ll share a post related to online advocacy.

Below are a couple of introductory videos on the topic that I think some of you, especially those new to the topic of online advocacy, may find helpful:

This first video was made to teach youth organizers how to use social networking sites to build momentum for a campaign.  This video provides short and simple explanation of e-advocacy and a general overview of designing and implementing an online campaign.
