Organizing 2.0 Conference

1684 people attended
Organizing 2.0 is the premier skills training conference for organizers, communicators, techies and activists of all levels. This year's conference is fully online!

To learn more about Organizing 2.0 and see the event schedule, please visit!

Join hundreds of staff and members of unions, community organizations, grassroots campaigns, local nonprofits and independent activists too, for workshops, trainings, discussions, consulting and networking opportunities. We feature visionary speakers, and provocative debates around strategy and practices.

Trainings include: online to offline organizing, online fundraising, visual storytelling and digital strategy for everyone from absolute beginners to experienced digital organizers and much more.

Q: Will all sessions be available as a recording after the conference is over?
We are going to try and make a recording of each session available to each person who registers at full price. However, we cannot guarantee that this will happen for every single session.

Q: I’m a CUNY faculty/student. How do I register?
A: Please email [email protected] from your CUNY email address for a special registration link. CUNY students (currently enrolled) and CUNY staff (faculty and non-faculty) may attend for free!

Q: Can I purchase multiple tickets?
A: Each ticket registration requires creating an account with Hopin, (our online conferencing platform), using a unique email address and choosing a password. You are welcome to buy more than one ticket, but you'll have to buy tickets one at a time using unique email addresses for each person on your team. If you are buying 5 or more tickets please contact [email protected]

Disclaimer: Our team has been running this conference in New York for the last 10 years. Converting to a virtual event has been challenging! We’re doing our best to let everyone know we’re trying to record all sessions, allow for meaningful participation and engagement during the sessions, and replicate some of the experience of being at a regular conference. We might not reach our goal in every instance, and we cannot offer refunds. We know participants will have a meaningful experience and trust in our small team to do their best.
