This workshop will be led by Devin Murphy, an Ash Center Technology and Democracy Fellow who leads the digital communications and technology program at the California League of Conservation Voters. Participants will explore key digital and technology organizing strategies (including rapid response, digital advertising, email marketing, P2P texting) and get a hands-on experience of how the nation's largest civil and human rights organizations are using technology to advance democracy.
