Hashtag Activism Will Not Save Us! The Only Way Forward is to Organize, Organize, Organize

Rhetoric and Public Advocacy Program presents Hashtag Activism Will Not Save Us! The Only Way Forward is to Organize, Organize, Organize. Organizing like-minded people together with a shared voice and common goal is the most powerful force in government and politics -- everything else (e.g., social media campaigning, political advertising, fundraising) is a substitute. But it takes work. Rhetoric and Public Advocacy along with their guests will discuss the value and fundamentals of organizing in the present political environment.

 

Panelists:

Mario Ferone, Director of Operations for Senator Jim Gaughran, and former field organizer for Bernie Sanders

Mary Anne Trasciatti, Professor, Department of Writing Studies and Rhetoric, and Director, Labor Studies Program, Hofstra University

Saul Guerrero, Local 338 RWDSU/UFCW Cannabis Worker Union Representative and Organizer

 

Moderated by Dr. Philip Dalton, Department of Writing Studies and Rhetoric, Hofstra University
