Blogging and Social Media: Spreading the word through the Internet
Social media and blogging platforms are wonderful ways to spread the word about victims’ rights, SNAP news, and other issues surrounding child sexual abuse. But how do you get set up? How do you start the conversation? And once the conversation begins, how do you keep things healthy and civil? Joelle Casteix will lead attendees through a “crash course” on blogging and social media basics. They will leave with tools that can help create healthy conversations that can help change opinion in the most important court of all: the court of public opinion.
