So we all know how to use Instagram to find our favorite new restaurant, and how to find good memes on Twitter. But what does it mean to be an activist on social media?
If you have a cause you care about and a social platform with more than 5 followers, you can make a difference. So we gathered for our April 2019 training at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture to discuss Social Media Activism (Yes, social media activism is real—and it works. Just watch AOC’s insta stories if you don’t believe us). We learned best practices, worst practices, how to raise money, how to raise awareness, and how to get your followers to take action on the issues you care about! Then, we put our new skills into action to support badass Queens DA candidate, Tiffany Caban. Plus, there was wine.
