The U.S. Elections—Innovations in Organizing

This webcast, presented by the OSI Democracy and Power Fund, looks at the historic 2008 U.S. elections and the newly catalyzed brand of movement-building, distinctive for its integration of traditional grassroots organizing and creative use of new technology.  The discussion provides a snapshot of how nonpartisan organizations can use innovative organizing and technology strategies to more effectively advance a progressive agenda, and analyzes the role that emerging constituencies, specifically the growing Latina/o population, played in the elections.

Facilitated by Bill Vandenberg, OSI Democracy and Power Fund director, the discussion features Judith Freeman, co-founder and executive director of the New Organizing Institute, and Jorge Mursuli, president and CEO of Democracia USA.
