#14NTCcare
Is online advocacy in a rut? Many of us have mastered the art of flooding Congress with emails, but studies suggest that legislators don't care. Digital organizers are trying new ideas and new tactics to generate powerful engagement that makes a difference. Hear stories of challenges and triumphs from veteran online campaigners as we tackle the big question: how do we use technology to give our activists real, meaningful ways to create change in the world?

Attendees will walk away with: 1) An understanding of the limitations and shortcomings of traditional online advocacy; 2) Examples of campaigns that have used online to create real-world impact; 3) Exciting ideas for where the future of online advocacy might be going, and new tactics to try.
