In this working paper, we investigate high-level changes in the online strategic communications of organizations engaged with SDG 8.7 (ending modern slavery) during the COVID-19 crisis. We present preliminary evidence of important semantic and thematic shifts based on data from Twitter during this time, with an emphasis on developing the SOLACE (Social Listening and Communications Engagement) dashboard, and with recommendations for important future research involving the use of social media data as a basis for distilling organizational-agenda proxies based on digital campaigns and activism during times of crisis.
