Presentation: Using the Internet for Political Outreach & Advocacy

I’m doing a presentation today for the FamiliesUSA Health Action 2010 conference, on the subject of how organizations can use the internet for advocacy — rather a familiar topic around here, don’t you think? Alan Rosenblatt will also be on the panel, along with Donna Norton, who handles online strategy at Mom’s Rising. Should be a great discussion, and I’m posting a copy of my presentation for posterity, hilarity and the general good of humankind. Enjoy!

Even MoveOn.org got a shoutout! Oh wait, that was on the Daily Show. And the online advocacy organization got more than just a mention; they received a Very Special Delivery, courtesy of the Acorn Pimp:

Excellent detective work, Jon — now that we know the source of their strategy, we’re one step closer to beating them. If The Law hasn’t already beaten us to it…
