Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Digital Strategy

I had the opportunity last week at Netroots Nation in Atlanta to get together with a bunch of amazing colleagues from Hustle, Mobile Commons, Color of Change, Working America, United We Dream and Everytown for Gun Safety to talk about my FAVORITE topic: Mobile Advocacy.
