  • Movement Technology Trainings in 2018

    At Wellstone, our Movement Technology program is about people and the connections between us -- not tech for tech’s sake.

    In 2016, we began this body of work because we saw that technology was getting farther and farther away from the core components of what makes organizing so powerful: people. Our framework has evolved over the last two years, and we’re proud to report that organizers and communicators that come through our doors are creatively equipped with the skills to face an increasingly complicated world.

  • Data and Analytics Camp: Suiting up for the Fight Ahead

    Friday and Saturday were a study in contrast so fierce it took my breath away. On Friday, the threats to our communities reached a viciousness and a scale many of us haven’t seen. Yet Saturday we saw a wave of new energy and support, banging on our doors, ready to be a part of the fight. 

    As organizers, it is our task to step up and meet the moment. For me, as an NOI Data Bootcamp and Bernie 2016 Data Team alum, that means harnessing data and analytics to support long term community organizing as well as electoral wins. We can do both and in this moment, we have to.

  • What's New at RootsCamp

    When I took on this role as Wellstone's first Director of Movement Technology, I came from six years as a Wellstone adjunct and six years as an NOI guest trainer. I had taught  computer programming in DC and grassroots organizing in neighborhoods across the Midwest – and across those moments and 15 cumulative years as an organizer, I've watched my home movements grow, change, awaken, and reckon.
