Catherine and Katrin will both be speaking at Personal Democracy Forum in New York June 23 and 24. Katrin will be moderating and Catherine will be a participant in a panel on mobile politics that will be examining what has and hasn’t been successful for mobile political organizing this year. We’ll also explore what to expect as we move into the Fall campaign season. More details and other panelists coming soon!
Katrin is the co-author of the new Wireless Technology for Social Change:
Trends in NGO Mobile Use, released by the United Nations Foundation and
The Vodafone Group Foundation.
Wireless Technology for Social Change: Trends in NGO Mobile Use was written by Sheila Kinkade (ShareIdeas.org) and Katrin Verclas (MobileActive.org), and commissioned by the United Nations
Foundation-Vodafone Group Foundation Technology Partnership. The report examines emerging

We will be presenting a session during the Women Who Tech teleconference on Monday March 31 at 5:15 PM on Mobile Activism. We’ll be presenting an introduction to mobile activism, fundraising, and campaigns, discussing some mobile campaigns that worked well, and some that didn’t - and working with session participants to answer questions specific to their mobile programs. Women Who Tech is a great resource (and vibrant google group!). We’re excited to be providing this information to the women’s technology community and building our collective knowledge- our session is full (as are all the sessions!) but you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on a waiting list.
