Description: How to boost the visibility of your healthcare-for-all rallies and activism using social media. We’ll cover tools like Twitter, Facebook, and good ol’ email—with movement examples of what has worked, what is best to use when for what impact, what to prioritize if you’re on a shoe-string or zero budget and are a social media beginner, and how to build and use a Social Media volunteer committee to deepen your organizing.
