In this presentation, I present a few different methods for using mobile technology to support advocacy -- especially advocacy events like rallies or press conferences. I give specific examples of organizations using techniques like texting, live-tweeting or live-blogging, and mobile photo uploads to involve supporters who aren't physically present at an event -- and sometimes get great media coverage out of it too!
