This is an interactive, screensharing webinar. Research can be a powerful tool to inform campaigns, mass actions, and narratives of our local and national movements. This webinar will focus on some basic research tools that organizers can use to investigate powerful people, corporations, and organizations in their region. We will start to answer questions including: What business, social, and philanthropic relationships does a particular CEO have? Who are a particular corporation’s biggest investors? How can I map out the connections between the Board of Directors of two corporations? How can I identify the most powerful people in my city? Research tools covered will include: Google! LittleSis ("an involuntary facebook of the 1%"), EDGAR (the Security and Exchange Commission's search engine for public corporation's filings).
