How are communities leveraging technology for organizing and resilience in the face of disaster -- whether natural disasters like hurricanes, or human rights disasters like water shut-offs and home foreclosures? Using the Detroit Peoples' Water Board as a case study, we will assess a variety of media, technology, and other communications tactics to understand what works, what doesn't work, and what tools are out there for community organizers to tap into. We will share principles and organizing models developed by the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition and research and assessment tools created by the Wise City for participants to take home and adapt to their own contexts.
