Digital Evangelist: Sending Activist Emails

Last July when I was charged with training NAACP members in digital media, I thought—here is a great opportunity for me to share my love for digital media with the NAACP family.  With that challenge in mind, I aim to teach folks about mobile, social media and everything in between.  My weekly blog will update you on my trainings; and give you info about how to sign up and equip yourself with the tools you need to disseminate your message well for your NAACP branch or chapter.

This week’s webinar is MailChimp 101. This is a companion to last week’s webinar on Email For Organizing – it covers how to use MailChimp, one of the many free and low cost email clients that branches can use to send out campaign emails or newsletters to their list. Register and join me for the webinar this Thursday at 9:15pm Eastern Time.

During last week’s webinar, I talked about Email for Organizing. I explained why email is an important organizing tool,  the uses for email, and also covered what makes an effect email and best practices. 

If you need help thinking of ways to more effectively use email, contact me at and I’ll be happy to assist you.
And please make sure to join me on our future webinars! Topics and dates are below:

Mailchimp 101 - May 23rd

Mobile Messaging for Organizing - May 30th 

Blogging 101 – Tuesday, June 4th (Please note the day change for this week only)

At the end of the webinar, please take a moment to fill out the Weekly Webinar Survey. Is there a topic you are interested in that is not being covered? Let me know! Our primary goal is to equip you with all the digital tools you need for your local NAACP branch. Look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
