Our Topic:

Gone are the days when campaign contributions were enough to influence decisions of policymakers.  With 24/7 news coverage and constituents scrutinizing every vote on the Internet, today's lawmaking process is more transparent than ever.  Effective advocacy calls for powerful facts and figures to support your issues. This panel of experts will examine the power of data from several perspectives, including the content supplier, consumer, translator, user, and the press.
