Thank you for your interest in Half in Ten’s latest training, “New Social Media Strategies for Antipoverty Advocacy.” Alan Rosenblatt, Associate Director for Online Advocacy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, showed us how one of the newest and fastest-growing social networks—Pinterest—can be used to reach new audiences, make a point using images and video, and create an online community committed to reducing poverty and hunger.
Alan shared another strategy for online activism by which the antipoverty community would come together around a question and tweet it at producers and hosts of the Sunday talk shows as a way to hold policymakers and thought leaders accountable and to start a national conversation around poverty reduction.
