The 2008 election
cycle has been historic in many ways.  One of the most visible has been in
the strategic use of online tools to help catalyze record levels of
participation, especially from youth, in voter registration and mobilization
efforts, as well as in raising and framing issues in ways that catch the
attention of candidates and the media.  As we look beyond the election, how
will and can these online tools and strategies be used to involve new voters in
issue campaigns, policy victories and long-term sustained civic
participation?  Our speakers, Jessy Tolkan, Co-Director, Energy Action
Coalition,
and Maya Enista, Chief Executive Officer, mobilize.org, have helped
build organizations that will mobilize thousands of people to vote in
November.  Join them for a co-sponsored FCCP and PACE July First Monday
Call to learn about the ways their organizations plan to harness the power of
online and web 2.0 tools to continue to engage and promote an active
citizenry.
