Mapping For Research & Organizing

Workshop Description:

Powerful maps can move people in ways that tables of data cannot. In this skills-based workshop, Grace Regullano of the Sunrise Project (former UTLA Strategic Research & Analytics Director) will teach you how to make maps with different software options, and how to use those maps to effectively communicate with members or the public about your campaigns.
