Electronic Advocacy: Why This Site?
In 1998, I and a former student did some research into the use of electronic advocacy by a group of affiliates of one of the social work professional associations. This site was originally created on the Boston College Graduate School of Social Work home page to provide resources for the respondents and as a means of thanking them for completing our questionnaires. Since then I have added new material to the site and moved it away from the original location.
Over the years, I have also had the opportunity to learn about how people throughout the nation are building new communities through cyberspace. I hope that you find this site and our research useful in your efforts to build a society that is more fair and just. Please let me know if you learn of something that should be included here.
What is Electronic Advocacy?
Electronic advocacy is the use of high technology in efforts to change public policy at the community, state, national or international level. This includes a wide variety of strategies, tactics and tools.
