This webinar will offer a primer on how to research and map corporate power (“power mapping”) generally and fossil fuel and utility power specifically. We’ll learn the basics of power mapping through looking at a major corporation that is behind multiple DSA campaigns - Exelon.
Participants will learn about research tactics, databases, visual mapping tools, and other resources to help them get started mapping corporate power. Discussion will also focus on how power mapping helps organizers concretely strategize and come up with new and effective tactics (with examples). The corporate power-mapping organization LittleSis will lead the training. The webinar is co-sponsored by DSA Ecosocialists and LittleSis.
