Grace under fire:
responding to a pandemic
Clean Clothes Campaign
campaign, lobby, action
campaign mini-sites (Gatsby)
~ 60-80 million workers
... yet pays poverty wages
wage loss: ~6 billion USD (March-May)
Sri Lanka: 50% of Covid cases in garment factories
77% of workers report going hungry
75% are in debt
USD 40 billion cancellations
USD 16 billion recouped!
... however, still a long way to go
Aligning our response
# of *active* Intranet users up 250%
Website and blog
rising visitor numbers
live-blog read by industry & press
updates 3x per day
spread all around
no time for onboarding
various skill levels
... so, mistakes happen ;-)
I've spent more time in ZMI than in years...
... where did that life-saver go?
UNDO button now!
CastleCMS has best Mosaic experience
so we abused it...
up to 100 tiles per page
Embed ALL THE THINGS
CastleCMS is opinionated:
all content is folderish
New editors "get" it directly
However, Folders are still useful
Just to put things in the right boxes
we've had this backwards...
Folders are "Page-ish" !!!
PDF generation sucks
colors ARE culturally specific
... as are icons
Not all people have last names
Binary genders? That's soooo 2010...
"mobile-first" is a LIE
really, have you tried yours?
... on a $80 tablet in the sun?
secure alternatives for Gsuite, Zoom, etc
Difference between a Wordfile and a page ???
Plone & friends held up
... even if creaky sometimes
We can connect our network of activists
Overcoming barriers of distance, language, culture, gender
We gather evidence, devise strategies
CCC is taking on a multi-billion industry
- with vastly more resources than we have -
yet are booking campaign wins,
and garnering recognition.
We remain operational
and more determined than ever!
All while running on Plone
(and a vast array of other free software)
Know we're putting your work to good use!
a big THANK YOU!
Keep up the good fight
see you at the face2face, or online.
