Event description: Every sector of society has a role to play in social change, but none might be as important as citizens themselves. How can we best organize ourselves to drive innovation and reform? This webinar, sponsored by the Government Innovators Network and the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy, featured two experienced organizers who are deftly growing their impact through two seemingly dissimilar platforms: labor organization and digital media. We heard their lessons learned regarding the potential of member-based associations, how initially to bring people together, the tension between advocacy and collaboration with government, and the future of organizing in a digital age.
This webinar was moderated by Archon Fung with panelists Sara Horowitz and Maya Enista.
