Organizing Around Public Policy

By Tom Watson on December 28, 2007No Comment

Politicians, especially the national variety, have gone super-social in their Internet pleading for votes – and many create real causes around their candidacy. But actual policy work is still pretty rate. I’m prejudiced because I sit on their board, but the folks at the Drum Major Institute for Public Policy, a progressive think tank in New York, know how to work the policy buzzwords. My friend Elana Levin shows how it’s done on the DMIblog with a simple “ten best” list of public policies for 2007 – these lists can get so viral, they’re always a good strategy. More on some of DMI’s work in future posts – and in the book. Note: today, Andrea Batista-Schlesinger lists the ten worst public policies of 2007. Great stuff, and very effective.
