The Digital CultureSHIFT: Moving from Scale to Power to Achieve Racial Justice

Join us for a Netroots Nation keynote conversation on the digital culture shift

As activism for police accountability, fair wages, just immigration, and more takes center stage, social justice movements are using technology to achieve greater scale and reach wider audiences.

In an age of big data and digital technology, do these strategies build power for long-term social change or are they helping maintain the status quo? Does the Internet disrupt racism or enforce a new era of Jim Crow?

At Netroots Nation, we’ll dig into this topic during a Friday plenary session organized by the Center for Media Justice. This keynote conversation—The Digital CultureSHIFT: Moving from Scale to Power to Achieve Racial Justice—is scheduled for Friday, July 15, at 2:30 p.m. CST.

RSVP today to join us in person or to watch the livestream. All RSVPs will receive the livestream link via email. 

You’ll hear from leaders on the front lines of the 21st century movement for racial justice and civil rights, including Color of Change’s Rashad RobinsonLinda Sarsour of MPower, Autumn Marie of Black Lives Matter, Cayden Mak of 18 Million Rising, Joe Torres of Free Press, and Malkia Cyril from the Center for Media Justice. The session will be moderated by Samhita Mukhopadhyay of mic.com.
