NEW:

ITASCA DFL TECH TEAM:

Who & what is it?
Individuals and/or groups committed to expanding the DFL digital footprint by influencing northern Minnesota to engage as Democrats.
 
Why is it forming?
Because successful campaigns “should have digital at the heart of everything they do”, and Itasca County DFL has just a few volunteers. 
 
Where is it?
Individuals and/or groups work from home; the core team meets, as needed, at the DFL office to set goals, assess progress, and obtain/provide technical assistance.
 
How does it function?
  • Individuals commit to being on the team by contributing at least twice a week (preferably more).
  • Individuals post directly on social media or forward comments, links, "likes", "retweets", images, and videos to a team leader.
  • Individuals and/or groups focus on (1) topics aligned with the DFL platform, and/or focus on (2) government officials.
  • Individuals and groups follow, support, and promote each other with the goal of influencing the largest number of individuals and our elected officials.
