Ever wondered why no one showed up when you sent out a press release about your event or action? This workshop is for organizers and activists who want to learn how to get media to cover their campaigns and actions. We will talk about how to design actions that are newsworthy, how to do outreach to press, and how to use press and digital tools to create a buzz around your campaign. We will also cover media basics like messaging, press releases, media advisories, letters to the editor and op-eds. Facilitated by Naomi Dann and Trevor Smith, media strategists with the New York Civil Liberties Union.
