Why do we need community cable channels when we have the internet? How many times have you been asked this question and not had a quick, compelling answer? It’s time to polish your stump speech. What can your center bring to the community that no one else can? Who in your community would jump and to support you as a vital resource? If you can’t think of any, it’s time to start making these allies now. Panelists will talk about the ways that they have channeled their resources to attract the attention of key political allies and potential donors.
