Check Out Comments on Posts
I urge everybody who reads this blog to make sure to check for comments and the end of each posting. For example, there are already two comments on the "Broadcasting a Challenge to Empire" post from July 4th.
One is by Peter Alexander, an early Environmental Advocacy and Organizing Program alum who went on to be the Executive Director of New England Coalition Against Nuclear Pollution and is now the Executive Director of the Biodiversity Project, a group which also hosts a Great Lakes Town Hall interactive website. His comment is on the importance of paying attention to strategic communications and framing as the best way to move beyond "preaching to the choir."
The other comment is by Dave Morely, a current EAOP student who went to the West Coast this summer for his first 300 hour practicum field placement with the activist group CorpWatch, a great web resource on corporate power issues and campaigns. He writes about working on their soon-to-be weekly radio program that they are beginning to produce and distribute. (Click the Corpwatch Radio link here and you can listen to one of their shows!)
I also know that Ellen Hayes, the Advocacy Clinic student discussed in the July 2 post "EAOP Supports Community Radio," is planning on posting a comment next week further describing her leadership efforts to push community radio in the greater Keene area.
So, please read the main posts on this blog, but don't forget to scroll down and check for additional comments, and then click on them and read them too.
