Influencing the Influencers
Long before "Insta-Influencers" cluttered up the scene and distorted the meaning of "influencer," even long before the internet, there were political influencers who convinced people to change their opinions about issues and candidates, or at least take action on opinions they already held. Since the rise of social media, many old-school influencers and a host of new influencers leverage social media to dramatically increase the scale of their influence to reach citizens, voters, and activists to shape their views and move them to action.

Last March, immigrant leaders from Movimiento Cosecha launched the national Undocumented Worker Fund to create a way for people everywhere to support families affected by COVID-19.

Voter Density and Turnout: How Data Insights Can Improve your Field Plan
When organizational or political campaigns are working on a field plan, there is a lot of focus on voter turnout. However, taking a look at voter density can also help you decide which tools in the field toolbox will serve you best. A field strategy aimed at reaching people who live in a high rise with 300+ likely voters should be different than a strategy aimed at reaching voters who live in single-family homes.

We will start by mapping voter density vs. voter turnout, brain-storming which field activities (door knocking, text banking, community events, etc.) are best for each situation. We’ll also walk folks through a data template that will help campaigns do the same analysis on their voter data.

This training is great for people who are either new to working with field data for a campaign or local organization, or for anyone looking to improve their skill in analyzing such data.

Q&A is not Interaction
Have you attended a session where the facilitator says it will be interactive, only to find out that the Q&A section is the "interaction?" Putting questions in the chat is a good start but should not count as engagement! We want participants to be active learners in our workshops; we must provide opportunities to practice the new skill introduced, demonstrate a new concept for themselves or interpret new information in their own way. Our role should be a facilitator - facilitating knowledge. In this session, we will discuss and brainstorm ways to "engage-ify" training, either online or off. And by "discuss," we don't mean endless slides and a presenter talking for 45 minutes.

The People's Plan: How To Build A Multi-Issue Policy Platform And Build Political Power on the Left
2021 is a monumental local election year, with the mayoralty and two thirds of the City Council up for grabs. The People’s Plan NYC offers the priorities of hundreds of organizers and advocates through a comprehensive, multi-issue roadmap around housing, anti-criminalization, education, economy, climate, transit, and health. The intent of The People’s Plan is to set the agenda for the city and provide a clear people-centered mandate to the incoming elected officials running the City in 2022 and beyond.

This session will go over how to build a multi-issues platform like the peoples plan, the process of evaluating and aligning on policy priorities, and how to use such a platform to build electoral power and influence an incoming administration. Attendees will leave this session having a clearer idea of how to plug into multi-issue electoral organizing in NYC, or how to build this kind of platform in your own city!

The Rise of Pets in the Political Sphere: How to Use Paws to Further Your Cause
According to the American Pet Products Association, 67% of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet. Political candidates like Senator Elizabeth Warren and Secretary Pete Buttigieg are famous dog owners: Warren’s golden retriever, Bailey, appeared as a 25-foot inflatable outside a Democratic Party event in Des Moines; President’s Biden’s two German Shepherds are featured numerous times in his presidential digital ads; and Buttigieg’s two pups have a fan-run Twitter account with more than 90,000 followers. Candidates are using their pets to relate to their public and establish their humanity vis-à-vis their animal friends. And organizations use this tactic, too -- the organizing platform, Action Network, is among the organizations that utilize images of dogs and cats on website error pages. The usage of cute animals conveys humanity (“I have a dog, therefore I’m human” or “We all make mistakes -- here’s a cute cat!”), while simultaneously relating to an audience.

In this training, we’ll tell you more about this cute pet phenomenon and teach you whether and how to adapt these humanity-conveying strategies for your cause, organization, or campaign. Guest appearances include our pets, Kikue, the cat, and Lilly, the dog.

This training assumes an understanding that our body politic now includes millions of voters who enthusiastically support alternative versions of reality, akin to actual cult members. Our focus will be on rhetoric, behavior, and practices that help rescue loved ones and community members from collective delusions.

New Trends in Latinx Organizing
From long-dominant voting blocs in Florida and New York and Arizona to emerging influence in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, this panel will address the best strategies and tactics from old and new. The right wing is not ignoring the latinx powerhouse - we will also address how disinformation targets these communities and how organizers can help fight this influence. As we gear up to get appropriate access to the Biden White House and put our plans in place for 2022, where should Latinx organizers and those who can learn from them be focused?

Integrating Your Mobilizing & Organizing
It’s no secret that organizing is hard work. At the same time, talking with people, knowing them, creating relationships, and building leaders is what has, and will, advance our progressive movement. Plus, it’s what sustains us, protects our most vulnerable, and for many of us, it’s what brings us joy. We are at a pivotal moment in time where we know the importance of high-attention short-term events like elections, voter registration pushes, and Census outreach. This is, and has been, our bread and butter for base building. Our challenge, and the next step, is molding these moments into long-term power building opportunities for our communities.

Program leaders, organizers, and volunteers alike are encouraged to join us for this session where we will dive into how programs can successfully integrate mobilizing and organizing efforts.This often looks like "both and" where we can prioritize both voting and organizing, moments and movements, winning and wielding power, local resources and national resources, high tech and high touch, mobilizing folks and building leaders, C3 and C4, and practicing passion and patience.

Relational Organizing 101 - A methodology for year-round power building
To win transformative victories, we need to build power in our communities from the ground up, 365 days a year — not just when an election is around the corner. Relational organizing is how we win. It’s not just a buzzword for the most effective voter contact method at our disposal; it is a methodology at the center of how communities have always organized and built power to meet their needs. One thing we’ve seen time and time again, whether from unions, campaigns, grassroots community groups or large distributed organizations, is that relationships are our greatest source of power, and when we center them in our work, we have the capacity to create transformative change.

This session will teach you how to create a relational-forward organizing program that empowers leaders to leverage power for tangible victories, from issue and electoral outcomes to building your base.

A New Day in NY Politics?!
Ranked Choice Voting isn’t the only major shift in NYC politics. We’ve also seen nonprofit groups start partisan efforts like The Jewish Vote or VOCAL Action Fund, the transformation of the Working Families Party from a local labor backed entity to a broader base building dynamo, and a mayoral race that remains surprisingly open.

Come to this panel to deepen your understanding of the innovative work you haven’t heard about - and the opportunities for you, your favorite candidates and most important issues.

#FieldGoodNews that Mobilized AAPI Voters in the Georgia Runoffs: Coordinated Media and Digital Strategies for Campaigns
The Senate runoffs in Georgia were an extraordinary opportunity for multiracial coalitions and rapid electoral organizing that resulted in historic wins and Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) voter turnout. We will discuss the innovative approaches we took to coordinate media, digital, and field strategies in a fully integrated way. We will provide an inside look into: engaging g macro-/micro-influencers and leveraging their followers for youth turnout; working with ethnic and in-language media to ensure our messaging resonated with immigrant voters; aligning field contacts with communications and messaging to convert voters at the doors into spokespeople for the campaign; working with local and national AAPI artists to develop engaging content, and coordinating year-round organizing to maintain post-election engagement. This workshop is for campaign and organizing staff at all levels in communications and organizers who want to integrate digital into their campaign more fully.

Text messaging has grown into a major component of outreach efforts for campaigns and civic participation organizations alike. However, SMS efforts can be impacted by problems with deliverability, such as when carriers reject their messages as spam. Because carrier decision-making is opaque, it is often unclear exactly why certain messages are being rejected while others aren't. We will begin with a broad survey of SMS deliverability issues, and then present findings from detailed analyses of three large SMS campaigns carried out in 2020, covering tens of millions of messages.

Who Owns your Building & What New Yorkers Can Do With That Data
Have you ever wondered how many buildings your landlord owns in New York City? Have you ever been curious about the zoning of your neighborhood? Luckily, existing housing justice technology in New York City can tell us all of these things and more! _x000D_
This training will provide participants with a base understanding of how to utilize publicly databases and resources such as Who Owns What, ACRIS, and ZOLA (New York City’s Zoning Map). We will also discuss how these important technologies can help organizers find solutions to problems they face in housing organizing!

Campaign unionization 101 with the Campaign Workers Guild
The Campaign Workers Guild was formed in 2017. Since then, we’ve grown to have 500+ dues paying members and led the effort to bring campaign unionization to the forefront of the 2020 election cycle.

In this session, we’ll give attendees the basic tools and knowledge to organize their own workplaces, particularly campaigns and political organizations. We’ll share our own reasons for starting CWG and our experience since then, dig deep on our theory of building authentic campaign worker power, and share how attendees can be part of our movement for structural change in our industry.

Our target audience of former, current, and aspiring campaign and political workers will walk away from this session knowing the practical steps of unionization, the nuances of unionizing in campaign and political spaces, and what it takes to win.

Transforming "Cancel Culture" to Accountability Culture
Those on the left and right alike decry “cancel culture.” But what is “canceling” someone but a public attempt to hold them accountable? How can we effectively hold individuals and organizations accountable without the disruption and privacy violations that often work opposite of what is intended, and can discourage those who have been harmed from reporting it?

We will discuss the necessary components of a survivor-centered, trauma informed accountability process that is not based upon organizing around other people or "Trial by Twitter." Building accountability into our institutions and leaders means we don’t have to destroy or “cancel” them in order to recognize and repair harm. Organizers will leave with the tools to begin transforming their community spaces in healthy, positive ways to provide needed accountability and demonstrate leadership.

Target audience is anyone with an interest in leading or supporting efforts to combat toxic cultures in their organizations, workplaces and other movement spaces, by limiting harm caused by harassment, bullying, racism and misogyny.

Closing Plenary: The NEW New Media
The way media is developed and consumed continues to radically morph and change. Platform-agnostic offerings that push content into people’s social media streams is the latest iteration. Meanwhile, traditional television continues to splinter - over half of video content is consumed via streaming platforms. Regardless of how we (activists, organizers) consume media, these shifts in media consumption require changes in how we engage with voters, from press strategy to advertising.

Our esteemed panelists will give their take, with an emphasis on what everyone needs to know, from pacs and candidates with big budgets to small and local advocacy nonprofits.
