As part of our initiative to increase public outreach, we are looking to grow our resources that help section members engage with the wider public (e.g., social media use tutorials, guides for writing opinion pieces, guides for writing press releases, how to talk to policymakers, engagement in public sociology, etc.). If you have any materials or knowledge that you would like to contribute to growing this shared resource, please send an email to Nathan Lindstedt, Section Webmaster, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
