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.
