Sue: At present, I don't have such a template, but I am currently developing workshops for local groups, to be done in person or via Skype.  They start with a screening of Broadcast Blues, which is a 75-minute primer about our rights as the owners of the public airwaves.  Next, I will get the group to identify the key problems they have with their local broadcasters.  From there, we will develop a personalized action plan for their community.
