Half in Ten Hosts Free Social Media Training for Anti-Poverty Advocates

Half in Ten will host a free social media training for grassroots advocates with Alan Rosenblatt, Associate Director of Online Advocacy for the Center for American Progress Action Fund and the Center for American Progress, Thursday April 14.  Under Rosenblatt’s leadership the Center for American Progress’s new media presence earned the 2010 Markie Award for social media. 

Half in Ten is the national campaign to cut poverty in half in ten years.

The organizers at Half in Ten write: “Social media has emerged as a new and effective tool for advocacy and organizing. While many organizations and individuals have begun to understand and utilize the potential that Facebook, Twitter, and other areas of new media offer, there is still a great deal of room for the anti-poverty community to gain traction and presence online. In our ever-evolving political context, social media stands to be an incredible tool for advocates to stand up against budget cuts, galvanize an organized response, and capture the attention of members of Congress.”

The online training will cover how the anti-poverty/economic opportunity movement can use social media such as Facebook and Twitter to grow our audience, strengthen our capacity to respond to policy developments, and engage in new advocacy tactics with members of Congress.
