SSPA Texting 101 and Slack 101

Thursday, July 21, 2022 – 7:00 to 8:00 pm

Political texting reaches a lot of voters in a very short amount of time and can be a powerful medium for election-cycle activities. But it does require the use of multiple online platforms and we’re here to teach you how to do it! Join us for a 101 evening.

We’ll spend the first 20-25 minutes covering Texting 101, where you’ll get an overview of what political texting is all about and the technology involved. The second half is for Slack 101, to learn how to navigate this virtual office space that operates like instant messaging. Almost all campaigns use Slack to communicate with volunteers before, during, and after texting shifts.

When you’re ready to get started texting, you’ll sign up for the SSPA Texting team and join our own Slack space to be alerted to opportunities. If you have texted before and would just like a refresher, you are welcome to join us too!
