Our next Web Executive Seminar is coming up fast. It's titled "Online Video for Policy Impact." We've assembled an impressive panel of presenters.
Su Patel of WITNESS, will tell you more about the WITNESS Hub a new advocacy platform for sharing and watching videos about human rights.
Jeremy Ames who works in the Environmental Protection Agency's Indoor Environments Division, will speak about their Radon Video Contest -- the first video contest run by the federal government. Ames will offer advice on meeting the challenges of using a video sharing site within a government agency in support of public communication.
Morgan Jindrich of Consumers Union (the great organization that publishes Consumer Reports magazine), will tell the amazing inside story of the Cover America Tour. This past summer, her team drove a recreational vehicle l across the country collecting personal stories from people who lack health insurance or are under-insured.
We'll also hear from Marci McCoy-Roth, who co-directed the Kids Are Waiting campaign, an effort to ensure safe, permanent families for children in fostercare through reform of the system's financing. McCoy-Roth is an officer at Pew Charitable Trusts, who directed the campaign. The campaign used YouTube's nonprofit program to bring the urgent voices of foster care kids to Capitol Hill.
