Go Digital During Crisis
As physical meetings become too risky, the progressive movement must rely on electronic communications. If you want to help, or if you want to learn how to help, please sign up for our Digital Organizing Committee by clicking here. After you sign up, forward the link to others.
We need much better communications, but we have made some progress:
The Dallas AFL-CIO Web Site includes the latest labor news from our nation, our state, and our Central Labor Council. It also has sections that can be used to educate and activate us.
The Dallas AFL-CIO Facebook page is our main day-to-day, hour-to-hour outreach. We currently have almost 2,000 “likes.” You can help strengthen this platform by going to the page, clicking on the three dots ***, and then clicking on “invite friends.”
Labor is also active on Twitter and Instagram.
Our radio show just won an award “Best Radio Show” from the Texas State Teachers Association:
We have a regular monthly column in the “Union Craftsman” newspaper. We try to get “earned media” by publicizing labor events to newspersons, but we have had very little success. We could develop a systematic effort to get letters-to-the-editors published.
Great improvements could be made by our network of digital progressive activists!
