This is the ninth installment of a podcast following local activism efforts I am spearheading to address the surveillance state in Lexington, Ky. Through this series, you will get an inside look at boots-on-the-ground activism as it happens. The goal is to create a step-by-step how-to on tackling issues at the local level. You can access the other episodes HERE.
Once you build your website and create a virtual base of operations for your activism, you can begin to expand your reach through social media.

In this episode of the Activism 101 podcast, I talk about how to establish and expand your social media footprint.
