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. And if I am there in person, I will take them into a local TV or radio station to inspect the public files; there is nothing more empowering than walking in like we own the place, because we do!
JB: That's right: we DO own the place. Thanks for the reminder. The workshops you're developing sound great. How would communities get in touch with you about them?
JB: You've given us the tools, Sue. Now it's up to us to get down and use them. Thanks so much for talking with me again. It's always a pleasure.
