In the face of this pandemic, communities are dealing with many challenges, including how to connect with each other while also keeping the community safe. How can we engage our members, stakeholders, and partners in creative ways that allow them to still feel connected to one another and the work? How can we shift our strategies so that we’re meeting the community where they’re at and continuing to put its needs at the forefront? This training will explore community engagement strategies in both online and offline spaces, from meeting platforms to phone trees and flyering. Moreover, the training will touch upon the types of engagement that are accessible for hard-to-reach communities, such as aging adults with limited technology and people whose first language is not English. Participants will also learn how to further their impact and coalition message by utilizing wide-reaching online spaces like Twitter and LinkedIn.
