How can nonprofits break through the background noise and move people enough to close their laptops? Real change happens when people are willing to step outside of their comfort zones, but getting people there can be a real challenge. It requires going deep, but how does a nonprofit with limited resources do that at scale?

About Karl Hardin and Cam Gray

Karl Hardin is a digital strategist with the Dogwood Initiative (http://dogwoodinitiative.org/).

Dogwood (http://dogwoodinitiative.org/) identifies strategic points of power that can be leveraged by British Columbians to take back decision-making power over their land and water. Then it's about organizing and showing up. Karl focuses on realizing this online and moving the action offline.
