Social Movement Technologies
Electoral Campaigning in the Digital Age



SMT is developing online digital campaigning training for electoral and ballot initiative staff and key volunteers. 

Ready to deepen your electoral campaign skills to build grassroots engagement and win in the digital age? Here’s an affordable way to join a cohort of peers and ramp up your skills.

We expect the first trainings to start in spring 2020. Contact us if you’d like to collaborate.

Over the last 6 years, SMT has run online training for staff from over 1,700 organizing groups and unions. Trainings have ranged from one-off webinars to a robust Digital Campaigning Certificate Program for movement organizers.  More than 200 people are enrolled this year, with the next cohort starting in September.

Who this is for

  • Electoral campaigners, organizers, field, communications and fundraising staff who want to deepen their digital campaigning skills
  • Activists, staffers and candidates who want to help shape effective electoral campaigns that build grassroots engagement for justice and advance a sustainable future
  • Candidates who want to win and do it in a way that lays the groundwork for victory on a progressive policy agenda once in office
  • Those who need to wage aggressive, efficient ballot initiative campaigns and activate thousands of people in a small window of time during the election season – directly or in supportive roles through progressive organizations


What it includes

  • Live sessions on digital strategy, tools and tactics for electoral campaigns – in a condensed time frame to deal with campaign scheduling realities. This can include small group sessions set up to respond quickly to needs identified by partners.
  • A diverse instructor team with deep offline and online electoral experience
  • Ongoing access to SMT’s extensive, online up-to-date course library in digital campaigning. Assignments to watch particular video clips from the online video library will be made before and between live sessions.
  • Ongoing access to a peer community of progressive digital campaigners via Slack, including a channel just for electoral campaigners.


Cost

In general, each live session will cost $40-$50 per person. SMT seeks partnerships to invest in much lower group rates, reducing the cost further for everyone. This is the same cost structure SMT has used in all of its training.


Niche in the electoral training ecosystem

SMT’s goal is to provide high quality training online (not in-person) at a very low cost so that a maximum number of people can access it.

SMT sees this training as an add-on to excellent campaign training that is already available in these ways:

  • SMT training goes deeper into digital campaigning
  • It uses an explicit lens of laying the groundwork for movement building
  • Its primary target audiences are staff of down-ballot races, and organizational staffers who are involved with electoral work and ballot initiatives
  • It is designed to scale – so there are no limits to participation. Larger registration numbers will prompt more small group sessions.


Some ways we invite collaboration

Group sponsors. We welcome partnerships with organizations and networks that may be interested in sponsoring a “group rate” – providing access to their network at a significantly reduced cost. In that case, SMT can set up a registration portal so that the sponsor simply shares the URL for that page with their network. Here is an example of what that looks like for SEIU which has 70 staffers in SMT’s current Digital Campaigning cohort.

Advisors. Select people working in this arena have been invited to provide feedback and guidance as the program develops. SMT will acknowledge these people with appreciation at the bottom of the program’s landing page. The time commitment for this role is small but important – it might include reviewing the curriculum topics list a couple of times, a phone call for guidance or an introduction if it makes sense.

Digital campaigning Instruction. SMT sees value in exposing trainees to the range of support available in the electoral training organizational ecosystem. If you offer particular relevant expertise and are with a non-profit organization in this space or working as staff on a campaign, it may make sense to be a guest instructor.

Testimonials

I got a LOT out of it…the idea that comms can be used not just to “raise the visibility” of my organization, but to build power — to move people, engage them, get them to do something concrete to push our social justice work forward. The strategies and tools shared were super helpful, and have already had measurable impact. Staff is fantastic – knowledgeable, responsive, thoughtful, collaborative.

May Schindler, Communications Manager, Youth Leadership Institute and SMT Digital Campaigning 2017-2019 alum

SMT is the only training I know of that speaks our language of activism and uses the tools we use everyday in the field. They are a go-to resource to help raise the bar for communications in the labor movement.

Mark Maldonado – Digital Strategist, Texas AFL-CIO

I strongly recommend SMT. Their strong organizing background, preparation and thoughtfulness made our strategy assessment with them enjoyable and really helpful.

Daniel Carrillo – Exec Dir, Freedom to Thrive

I would recommend SMT to anyone looking to be more effective online. We are definitely going to experiment with the directions SMT gave us in our strategy session. Very valuable to have consulting from organizers who are keeping up with all the latest.

Melanie Scruggs – Texas Campaign for the Environment

SMT taught our staff and leaders to use Twitter strategically, understand the intricacies of Facebook for organizing…They respond quickly, have real world organizing experience, do really solid webinars that leaders and staff can engage with.

SMT helped us build an integrated, strategic approach to a union contract campaign. SMT’s work is sophisticated and flexible–their support was invaluable.

Super useful and practical strategy session. Great to learn what we can do to our website and Facebook page to make them better tools, described in a way I can explain to my board.

Nancy Boone – Legal Assistance Resource Center of Connecticut

Great ability to eloquently name a few top communications gaps that we could easily fix and increase our impact. The summary document is highly valuable; we will refer to it in our future planning!

Super helpful process with our staff and leaders to ID new tools we can use to reach our target folks.

Our strategy sessions with SMT have really energized our vision for what we need to do…In 90 minutes, we were excited and encouraged about how we could better our media and communications work.

Angela Moreno – Interim Exec Dir, FIERCE

SMT is a great resource if you’re looking to improve your organization’s social media presence and strategy.

Emily McNeill – Acting Director, Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State

The coaching has been fantastic. Staff has extensive understanding of the online landscape and strategy…jumped right into working with our members too, personable and supportive…great to work with someone who felt like a comrade and not just another non-profit consultant. I was amazed at SMT’s ability to connect us with experts or representatives of different online tools.

Incredibly knowledgeable…Weekly coaching has been a great experience. Keeps us on track. Staff is flexible, creative.

SMT was like a breath of fresh air in its approach to empowering small nonprofit organizing efforts. With not much funding, we were able to connect SMT to a few organizations in our network to provide analysis, coaching and hands on technical support. Here at Universal Health Care Foundation of CT, SMT gave us strategic help to up our game with our online organizing and engagement…particularly helpful in guiding us to a more savvy, productive use of social media.

Lynne Ide – Director of Program & Policy, Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut

SMT has worked with us to develop and implement a broad and integrated social media strategy. They helped our leadership understand the importance of such a strategy and taught our activists the basic skills to execute it. From website maintenance to targeted twitter campaigns, they are there when you need them and they understand that it is all about movement building.

All of SMT training is packed and powerful!

Monika Warner, Public Relations Chair – Professional Aviation Safety Specialists (PASS), AFL-CIO

SMT is an amazing resource for starting digital organizing and communications and maintaining a program that engages members and moves them to action. There are a bunch of free and super reasonably priced webinars available so you can jump right in and focus on what you need to improve.The webinars have just been stellar. I’ve learned so much, especially from the Top Tools and Tactics to bump up your organizing game. I used the templates and resources to set up an editorial calendar and to track stats for our new social media channels. It was very easy to take what was presented in the training and apply it to my union immediately.

Katie Ryan – Assistant Business Agent, IATSE Local 16

SMT helped us chose an appropriate database for our organization. Its focused training sessions are valuable tools that have helped us further a conversation with our grassroots leaders about strategically building a more powerful, goal-oriented organization.

Alison Auciello – Climate Justice Organizer, Communities United For Action

Trainings run by SMT are solid, accessible and worth checking out.

Barbara Deardorff – Indiana State Teachers Association

Love it!” (mobile optimization of TheStand.org)

David Groves – Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO

Design firms told us our current site couldn’t be mobile optimized, but SMT did it cleanly and affordably. The site looks great and SMT was easy to work with and addressed any concerns we had.

Our experience to date has been wonderful, helping us make the migration from one CRM to another as painless as possible…a life saver, terrific. Quick to respond, SMT staff provide clear explanations that avoid all the techno-garble.

I want to express my continuing and deep appreciation for SMT’s staff. We’ve made great strides and SMT has been catalytic…Among other things–fast, smart, patient, thorough, skillful handling of the website makeover. You guys pulled it off quickly and affordably.
