Partner Event: Influence Across America

National Digital Roundtable_The Rise of State and Local Power and the Impact of Digital Media

Influence Across America: The Rise of State and Local Power and the Impact of Digital Media, by National Digital Roundtable

Leaders working to influence public policy or create social change across America recognize that things don't work the way they used to. Policy discussions and decisions are increasingly moving to the state and local level, requiring new strategies to engage in the process.

Conversations about social issues are being driven by a new era of opinion leaders—newspaper editors and columnists, no longer the gatekeepers, have been displaced by the social media savvy. 

The April 29th panel will highlight organizations and campaigns that embrace converging media in a changing landscape. Hear from speakers who have leveraged traditional media relations tactics and today's direct-to-consumer digital strategies to advance their causes—supporting military families, advancing racial healing and advocating for policies that support the health and well-being of babies. And expert perspective from influential media organizations that excel in digital communication, and focus on state-level coverage to showcase best practices in achieving influence across America.
