How to Be an Activist: A Practical Organizing Training – Recording

April 21, 2022

What does being an activist really mean? To us, it means becoming a part of a campaign for tangible political change. It can mean calling your legislators to pass a key bill, knocking on doors to get a citizen-led proposition on the ballot, building a civic tech tool to help tenants know their rights, and so much more. Being an activist can take many forms, but in essence, being an activist means harnessing the people power that you hold.

On Thursday, April 21st, 12-1pm PT, we gathered for a practical training on how to be an activist, TechEquity-style. We gave an overview of all the different ways you can help win campaigns, the tools you need to do it, and how to get your friends involved. We heard from longtime organizer Megan Abell, Director of Advocacy, as well as Navi Dhaliwal, Organizing Manager, and Matt Brooks, Senior Civic Tech Manager at TechEquity.
