The Alliance of Youth Movements SummitThe Alliance of Youth Movements Summit is going on as we speak in New York City, and Howcast is streaming the entire event live. This conference is bringing together some really amazing people from the world of television, politics, community organizing, and academia. The various panels include: How To Build Transnational Social Movements Using New Technology, How To Use New Mobile Technologies and How To Preserve Group Safety And Security.

I urge anyone out there that wants to learn how to build an online movement to go watch this stream. As new media marketers we must understand the fundamentals to grassroots organizing because the Internet is nothing but grassroots. Building effective marketing campaigns in new media requires the fundamental understanding of organizing people around ideas. This is the heart of grassroots organizing.

So put aside your politics, forget stigmas, and preconceived ideas about “grassroots” and become a better new media marketer by grasping these fundamental organizing tactics online.

Thanks to TechCrunch for the heads up.
