New media is today’s media! Learn more about how online technology is helping community-based organizations find new ways to reach supporters, activists, volunteers, donors, and others.

Blogs, social networking sites, video and information-sharing websites are no longer just for the internet savvy, they are tools that every community organization and activist should be utilizing. Come learn about how your organization can use these interactive, participatory new media—including blogs, Craigslist, Facebook, action alerts, YouTube, and podcasts.
