UpRoots Data & Technology
New Organizing Institute
Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
19th St NW
UpRoots is NOI's newest program, bringing the lessons and
collaborative spirit we share at RootsCamp year-round. While RootsCamp
continues to be the leader in progressive un-conferences, bringing more than
2,000 organizers together annually, we're hoping that UpRoots will give
organizers a chance to dive deeper into important skill-sharing lessons.
Throughout the year, we'll be hosting UpRoots events focused on
individual parts of our organizing work, giving participants the opportunity to
dig down on specific topics.
In the weeks prior to each UpRoots event, an online moderator
will be posted for attendees to submit session ideas while other attendees vote
for the sessions they'd most like to see. The first two sessions of the day
will be seeded from that moderator while the afternoon sessions will be
submitted the day of each event.
UpRoots Data and Technology
How we use data and technology in our non-profits and campaigns
dictates how we survive and win. The beautiful (and challenging) thing about
this is the need for continuous innovation. And staying ahead of the curve
without constant collaboration can be almost impossible.
Join us for this Uproots Data and Tech. We’ll talk about ways
you use data and how can we simplify the collection and analysis of data so
that we can quickly put it to good use.
