What this effort is about: Phases One and Two

This advocacy effort has two phases.

Phase One: have "external library advocates" present 4 points, five times, to 115 communities around the state. Timeline: April to June, 2010. Gather stories.

Phase Two: connect these advocates (if they are willing) to another effort, the folks working on defeating a trio of proposals (2 constitutional amendments, and one proposition) that together would decimate library services (and not just library services) around Colorado. Timeline: Sept. to November, 2010.

The two are not the same. Libraries really are worth supporting, and we can prove it. Getting that message out is the primary objective. Mainly, this blog is about managing that effort. But you'll also find some links to the second issue. At that point, we move from library advocacy to political awareness.
