About the Webinar

As social activists, we have an obligation to disseminate our ideas and efforts to as broad an audience as possible. This webinar will focus on specific strategies for working with the media to get them interested in your work and to ensure that your work is accurately portrayed.

There will be three pieces to the webinar:

  • What is the purpose of connecting with media outlets?
  • What types of outlets are available to you (local, national, global) and how can you connect with them?
  • What are the logistics involved in working with media outlets (you rights, how to prepare, and what to expect)?
