No matter what side you’re on of the national “debate” concerning the arrest and trial of George Zimmerman, social media is playing a major role in the discussion. The news media is jacking headlines and content from it, pontiffs are pontificating about it, and the frustrated, angry, and scared are empting their feelings and sometimes ignorance with it. But where are the discussions amongst social media professionals about it? That question is what inspired “Social Media & Social Justice For Trayvon Martin.”
Join me as producer and host of what I hope will be a dynamic LIVE online discussion about the integral part social media has played in rallying the country, even the world, around getting justice for Trayvon Martin. Invited panelists are Million Hoodie Movement Executive Director, Daniel Maree, prominent digital and social media marketers, Wayne Sutton, Pitchto.co, Founder and CEO, Lynne D. Johnson, Digital Strategist and Social Media Marketer, Waggener Edstrom Worlwide, and other invited guests.
This panel discussion will take place live on Wednesday, July 24th, and Monday, July 29th, at 5pm PST/8pm EST. And you’ll be able to view it LIVE on YouTube, Facebook, Google+, and on mobile! Be sure to Sheer Social to your Google+ circles to view it on the business page there.
