Social Media Toolkits
Often, people dismiss social media and its’ importance in social justice movements. However, over the past 20 years, studies have found that social media is a unique tool that allows people to connect, learn, and mobilize at an unprecedented rate. Social media helps link people from all over the world who are dedicated to the same causes, building a community made up of a variety of ideas, narratives, and experiences. It has the power to educate many people at once and connect them to resources they might not otherwise find. It can enhance our offline activism, creating a foundation and jumping-off point for ‘on the ground’ action. We must utilize this tool in our movement.
