Social Media for Social Good: Joint Luncheon with FPRA


Social Media for Social Good

Brian Cox, United Way Worldwide

 

Are you looking for fresh ideas or answers to your social media problems? It’s time to rev up your social media machine for the summer. Brian Cox oversees Online Engagement for United Way Worldwide. In this role he is responsible for managing, executing and innovating online and in social space.

Before joining United Way in 2011, Brian’s professional history was political, and he is a self-described “political junkie.” He graduated Northeastern University in Boston with a degree in political Science and served in several capacities for the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts.

Subsequently, Brian moved to Washington, DC where he assisted Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York in raising funds for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in the 2008 cycle.

Just before coming to United Way, Brian was on the ballot himself in 2010, as a candidate for Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner to represent his Capitol Hill neighborhood on DCs Neighborhood Commission. Applying his passion for community organizing with his interest online outreach, Brian ran a hard fought campaign against a several-term incumbent, but ultimately lost that election by seven votes, far less than 1% of the total votes cast.
