Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies, New York City

Is online organizing really ‘organizing’? That’s a challenging question for those of us from a labor or community organizing background. That said, online organizing has received a lot of positive attention recently in connection with the presidential elections. What does this mean for our organizations?

Registration is now open. Tickets are $15.

Registration on the day of the event will be $20.
