Grassroots Leadership Network holds training for organizers on social media

Kevin Ferreira leads a discussion on how to Utilize Social Media for your Organization

On April 26, the GLN held a workshop for member organizers and leaders on using social media tools to develop stronger membership organizations, do outreach and organize campaigns more effectively. Some 20 graduates of previous Institutes participated in the training, led by CSIO volunteer Kevin Ferreira. The training reviewed social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram and others, helping participants think through when and for which audience each tool is appropriate.
