Create an Event With Anti-Racist All Hands

Create a gathering aligned with Anti-Racist All-Hands in 2 minutes! 

SameSide is an events platform that allows you to connect any event or gathering to a cause you believe in and deliver tools to raise awareness and spread knowledge. You can make your event public or private. If it is public, it will show up on the campaign page for others to discover and book. If it's private, it will only be shared with those who you share it with. 

Here's how to get started. 

 

Get Started

To create an event on SameSide, it's easy! You will be prompted to choose the "Anti-Racist All Hands by Fight Racism" campaign to align with when creating your event listing. By choosing this campaign, your event will be listed on the campaign page and your event page will show information about the campaign. 

Here's an example.

Your guests will also receive a toolkit texted to them at the start of your event. Here's more info about that. 

To get started follow these easy steps:

1. Create a SameSide account

Make sure to check your email to validate the account. 

2. Sign in to your account and click on Account in the upper right corner

 

3. Follow the prompts in the event creation flow.

Choose "Anti-Racist All Hands by Fight Racism" in the campaign field.

4. Use the ticket tab to collect RSVPs 

In the ticket tab is where you can create an RSVP ticket. You may also want to create an optional ticket with a cost as a donation. You can read more about ticket options here.

 

5. Enter your virtual meeting link in the Guest Resouces tab. 

Are you using zoom or Google Meet for your virtual event? Put the link to where you will connect in this tab. Guests who RSVP will receive the links you input here in their confirmation email. Use this to communicate the meeting link (for virtual) or any other resources you want to share ahead of the event (like an info page or link to buy a book, watch a film, etc)

There you go. Your event is now live! 

The campaign owners will rececive a notification once you publish your event.
