Social Media Breakfast MSP #35 - Activism

I was pleased to serve on an intriguing panel about nonprofits and social media at a Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul (SMBMSP) event a couple of years ago. Since that time, SMBMSP has continued to grow in size and stature as well as in the breadth of topics they cover. Turn your appetites to bacon and your tweetdecks to #SMBMSP for an engaging upcoming conversation about activism and social media at SMBMSP #35!

You are invited to attend...
