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.
This a short interview on the impact social media is having on political campaigns.
Remember you can always leave feedback in the comments section, but if you wish to reach out to me privately I can be contacted by email at email@example.com.
