In the lead-up to the Day of Action, join us in Tools for Change workshops that will help Fight Fee inspired activist building. All welcome.
Media can amplify campaign messages, but knowing how to use which medium most effectively can be a difficult task. In this workshop, activists will learn how to harness the power of mainstream and indie media through snappy press releases, letters to the editor, and solidarity statements. Learn how to distill your message, attract attention and raise public awareness of your campaign by improving your written skills.
