While at SEIU Local 2015, I launched the local's first-ever SMS campaign. The campaign, which was aimed at unionizing nursing homes, integrated social media, video, animated gifs and user-generated content to rally supporters and drive them to vote Union Yes.
The result: Union election win rates rose from 50% to 89%.Read more about the program here.
