Welcome to Mobiles in-a-box: Tools and tactics for mobile advocacy

Mobiles in-a-box from the Tactical Technology Collective is a collection of tools, tactics, how-to guides and case studies designed to help advocacy and activist organisations use mobile technology in their work.

Mobiles in-a-box is designed to inspire you, to present possibilities for the use of mobile telephony in your work and to introduce you to some tools which may help you. After reading the material in this toolkit you can expect to be able to design and implement a mobile advocacy strategy for your organisation.

Tactical Tech is no longer updating this toolkit. Read how it has been used here. We welcome people to develop, adapt or translate this toolkit. Please get in touch if you'd like to learn more.
