Livestreaming for Organizing Support

2,000+ Israelis stood two metres apart in a demonstration in Tel Aviv to protest against a possible alliance between centrist leader Gantz and current prime minister Netanyahu. Signs read “I will not be silent while my country’s face is changing.” (April 2020) [EPA-EFE, ABIR SULTAN]

Livestreaming has become an important organizing tool for building our activist base, fundraising, amplifying action, and pressuring targets.

This training recording is for beginner to intermediate level livestreamers and those who’ve never touched it. (Includes a livestream tools comparison spreadsheet – 11 tools compared.)

Looking for 1:1 help with tool selection, coaching, problem-solving or help running livestreams?

Fill out this form so we can match you up with the right person. SMT has several experienced livestreamers ready to help. Rates are $120/hour for 1-time consults on tool selection, livestream design, tech questions etc.,  and $150/hour for livestream support while live. At a lower hourly rate of $90/hr you can book a bank of 5 hours that you can draw down on as needed (we’ll just clock the time we use to answer even quick 10 minute questions).

[The SMT staffer] was a great coach for executing our group's livestream plan! Extremely responsive and eager to help out, even after hours and on the weekend.
