Saving the Planet with Social Media:
Using Social Media to Amplify Our Climate Activism
Monday, December 7, 2020, via Zoom
Please plan to join 350 Madison on Monday evening, December 7, for a conversation about the critical contribution social media makes to climate activism. Especially in this time of social distancing and quarantine, social media is playing an even more important role to create awareness and inspire our community to build a strong climate movement in Wisconsin. Laurie DeRuntz, Social Media Marketer, will share practical tips on how to make our communication even more effective to reach our existing audience and gain new supporters. You’ll learn what you can do to help amplify that message, how to do it, and why your voice makes a difference.
Laurie DeRuntz is a Social Media Marketer and Strategist with 20 years of experience in corporate marketing. More recently, she has been dedicated to helping nonprofits — including 350 Madison — and small businesses improve their online presence. “Don’t use social media to impress people; use it to impact people” is a favorite quote and a driving force in her optimism for her work. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and lives in the Hudson Valley in New York with her family.

350 Madison monthly meetings are open to the public. Typically held the first Monday of the month, they offer an opportunity to be inspired by a diverse group of climate activists who share personal stories and talents and support our campaigns, events, and direct actions. These meetings are a great way to learn about what 350 Madison does, meet other 350’ers, and find the best place to plug in to the action. Please join us!
