Workshops on advocacy and Internet announced

Is your organization working on transportation, community, or environmental issues? Are you looking for practical ways to incorporate the communication and information sharing powers of the internet in your advocacy efforts? The Transportation Advocacy and the Internet workshops are designed to be a primer on using the internet as an effective advocacy tool.

The program is designed to answer your basic questions and get you started on actively using the internet. The workshop also highlights the Transportation Action Network (TransAct) which is a full on-line system that can get you connected and even host your web page-all free of charge.

This workshop, part of a national series sponsored by U.S. EPA's Transportation Partners and STPP, is designed to help you and your organization use the internet. The workshop is a chance to meet other transportation activists and decide how to use the internet for organizing, education, and research purposes. In addition to the program, free consultations will be available to non-profit organizations working on transportation, community, or environmental issues to develop their own web pages.
