Join Jamye Wooten, a faith-rooted organizer, digital strategist, and 2015 Social Justice Institute Fellow at Boston University School of Theology, keynote speaker at our Tech To Tell Your Story conference. Jamye is the founder of KineticsCom and publishing editor of KineticsLive, an information ministry that integrates theological reflection and practice, and uses dialogue as a catalyst for social change.
Jamye has organized and documented social movements from across the United States, United Kingdom and Africa. He is the former program director of the Collective Banking Group, Inc. (CBG), a Christian ministry that draws together leaders from the faith, business, and public service sectors to develop and enhance economic empowerment strategies for the African American community.
Jamye will share with us how he used social media and other online organizing tools to respond with positive action in April 2015 when Baltimore was being portrayed in the news media as violent and unsafe. Jamye will provide the inspiration and show us just how much can be accomplished, and our breakout sessions will provide the step by step how-to you need to mobilize your audience to engage with your cause in a meaningful way. #FreddieGray #BaltimoreUprising #BmoreUnited
