The Department of Political Training organized a New Media Workshop for the Leadership Training Institute of America at the Leadership Institute on Monday, June 21, 2010. Students learned the “Dirty Dozen” social networking tools they can use to help with activism. They also learned how to create a blog and build their online communities using WordPress and Blogger. Abbey Alger, New Media Manager of the Leadership Institute's CampaignReform.org, presented the blogging lecture and LI’s Director of Political Training, Christopher Malagisi, presented the social networking lecture. The participants will use these tools to advance the conservative cause in 2010 with their individual activism and organizations.
