Learn How to be a Virtual Activist at SF Workshop

San Francisco Bay Area residents will have two opportunities in May to learn more about how to be a Virtual Activist.

On Saturday, May 10, the Media Alliance is sponsoring another half-day Virtual Activist workshop. This is an advanced workshop intended for activists who are already familiar with E-mail and Web browsers.

It will be held at the Media Alliance office, 814 Mission Street, Suite 205, from 1-5 p.m. Cost is $55, with discounts of $10-$15 for members of NetAction and Media Alliance. To register, phone 415-546-6491.

The workshop is co-sponsored by NetAction and the Institute for Global Communication, and is designed specifically for activists who want to learn how to make better use of the Internet for organizing, advocacy, media outreach, building membership, education, and fundraising. Participants will learn how E-mail, Web browsers, and more advanced tools of the Word Wide Web can be integrated with other outreach and organizing activities.

I will be co-teaching the workshop with Michael Stein, director of special projects at the Institute for Global Communication. Michael and I will also be teaching a one-hour workshop on May 20 as part of the Support Center's Non-Profit Day Conference. This workshop will only be open to registered conference participants. For information on the conference, phone the Support Center at 415-541-9000.

Activists outside the San Francisco Bay Area who are interested in co-sponsoring a Virtual Activist workshop with NetAction should contact me for further information, at: audrie@netaction.org or by phone at 415-775-8674.
