eAdvocacy Capacity Building - Central Valley

The Central Valley arm of Aspiration's eAdvocacy Capacity Building Program, funded by California Consumer Protection Foundation, seeks to work with organizations and community organizers to address the specific technological needs in the Central Valley of California.

What are we doing?

There are many grassroots and social justice organizations doing advocacy work in the Central Valley around issues as diverse as water safety and health to worker's rights and violence prevention.

Our 2011 Central Valley program will offer a set of no-cost trainings to cities and towns across the Central Valley focusing on a range of ways to integrate online campaigning, social media and internet tools and best practices into existing organizational campaigns and programs.

We believe that these organizations are the experts in their fields. We want to support and bolster the online efforts of Central Valley organizations and their constituents to continue to carry out their incredible work.
