## page was renamed from LoCoLobbyingGovernment
[[Include(LoCoMenuHeader)]]
Lobbying your local governments, whether it be at the town/city, state, or federal level, to adopt Ubuntu, Linux, Free Software, and Open Document Formats, especially for schools, can be one of the single most effective and powerful things your LoCo team can do.

This guide is still being written so please help using the following info :)

== Resources ==
Please use these resources to help create a customized how to lobby government guide specifically for Ubuntu, GNU/Linux, Free Software, and Open Document Formats. (We do not necessarily agree with any of the organizations, these inks are just resources to use on how to lobby government)

  * Who to contact?
 * Preparation
 * Petitions
 * Letter writing
 * Calling Officials
 * Meeting with officials
 * Pages to link from (after everything else is done)
  * LoCoTeamHowTo
  * ContributeToUbuntu

=== More possibilities ===
 * Press and Media
 * Educating the general (non-geek) public
 * Finding FLOSS friendly people within the government

== Ideas ==
Ideas (Please append @``SIG@ to the end of your comment):
 * Is there a better name for this page? It may end up going beyond just talking about lobbying government. -- Dpic [[DateTime(2008-01-31T01:49:32Z)]]
  * Possibly LoCoAdvocacy or LoCoActivism ? -- Dpic [[DateTime(2008-01-31T02:25:36Z)]]
   * LoCoGovernmentAdvocacy -- MatthiasUrlichs [[DateTime(2008-01-31T10:16:00Z)]]
    * I think that LoCoActivism is better because activism is in a great part is government advocacy and lobbying but also getting press and media attention and activism is more specific than advocacy which is something that all LoCos do. -- Dpic [[DateTime(2008-01-31T18:05:56Z)]]
