Building Online Social Movements: Interactive Workshop for Disabled Activists: 4th November 2020 from 7-9pm
Independent Living Movement Ireland (ILMI) are offering a free workshop to disabled activists on how to build groups online.
The training will be delivered by Aileen O’Carroll and David Landy and is based on the experiences of groups in the Repeal campaign. 
The training will focus how to build groups, get new members involved, retain members and deal with burnout. It talks about supporting members and dealing with the stresses of campaign work and meetings. It also discusses the role of values, strategies and organisational structures in building groups.
Aileen O’Carroll and David Landy are both sociologists, Aileen works at Maynooth University and David at Trinity College Dublin. Together they completed a research project called ‘Sharing Best Practices in how Civil Society Organisations use the Internet in Organising and Building for Socio-Economic Rights and Trust’. This project was funded by the Irish Research Council (IRC) and sponsored by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC).
These trainings are based on interviews with Repeal campaigners. This research was funded by the Irish Research Council and supported by Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission.
Spaces on this training will be limited and must be booked in advance by emailing
