      For those of you interested in online activism - this webcast on
      online advocacy and lobbying puts a more institutional twist on
      effective ways to use this medium to organize and make your voice
      heard in the political process.

      Online Advocacy and Lobbying Webcast

      This event was hosted by E-Democracy <http://e-democracy.org> and the
      Institute for New Media Studies <http://www.inms.umn.edu> at the
      University of Minnesota.

      Have you ever wondered:

      - What were the top e-mails received by Governor Jesse Ventura?
      - What people think when an interest group doesn't have a website?
      - What is an advanced collaborative online advocacy network?
      - What is online advocacy and lobbying anyway?

      If so, then listen to the online advocacy webcast from:

      Or directly from:

      The webcast includes audio with Power Point slides in Real format or
      audio-only for download in MP3. Short and to the point panelist
      presentations were followed by audience questions and an engaging
      discussion and debate.

      This is one of the best panel sessions ever held on this topic in
      general, and likely the only one freely available on the Internet.
      Minnesota is known for its depth of online political activity -
      lessons learned here are valuable everywhere.

      The dynamic panelists include:

      Robbie LaFluer
      - Director, Minnesota Legislative Reference Library

      Marcia Avner
      - Public Policy Director, Minnesota Council of Non-Profits
      - Author, Lobbying and Advocacy Handbook for Nonprofit Orgs.

      David Strom
      - Legislative Director, Taxpayers League of Minnesota

      Brian Elliott
      - Political Coordinator, Clean Water Action Alliance
      - Minnesota Environmental Action Network

      Christine Nelson
      - Former Director of Citizen Outreach, Governor Ventura's Office

      Linda Jean Kensicki - Panel Moderator
      - Asst. Professor, School of Journalism and Mass Communication,
      University of Minnesota

      Stay tuned next week for the announcement about the Net & Elections
      panel or get a preview at the same site.
