How Does Social Media Fit?

What do you know about social media?
We all saw the huge role social media played in the recent elections: It entrenched people’s beliefs on all sides of every issue. The influence of social media will likely grow in upcoming elections, so it’s important for us all to participate.

Whether you’re on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube -- whether you read, repost, or post -- you can use social media for good. Help by spreading accurate information, supporting Democratic candidates, and getting out the vote.

Call to action

SPECIAL EVENT

Attention Data Nerds

Join Swing Left Greater Boston and nine co-sponsoring groups on Sunday, May 16th, 7-8 PM to learn about the excellent work being done by Bluebonnet Data, an innovative nonprofit that recruits college students with skills in coding and data science, trains them as data analyst Fellows, and pairs them with progressive campaigns and causes to help them compete more smartly and win!  The event is not a fundraiser - just a chance to learn about some really good work to help promising but under-funded down-ballot candidates use data more effectively, and also to build the infrastructure needed for a more progressive future. Call to action
