Communicating data on decision-making

Communicating decision making data
Improving availability of decision making information
Enabling both individuals and political leaders to be informed about current political situations. The effect of this tactic is to provide organized data the individual can use to become involved in shaping the political process.
An integral part of re-aligning grassroots pressure by enabling the individual to be a powerful and effective participant in the political process. Tactics include: local meetings to publicize decisions made about community problems; research dissemination to expose new understandings of decisional problems through sending pamphlets, compiling reports, holding public and committee hearings, and organizing data banks; governmental feedback to communicate between the individual and legislative bodies specifically through mail-outs, press releases, standardized reports, congressional records and legislator speeches; media use is to transmit decisional data through radio, television, billboards, and through newspaper articles and letters to the editor; and grassroots voice to communicate local views to neighbours, groups and leaders through writing letters, telephoning, holding mass rallies and responsible demonstrations and visiting legislators. An example is the Women's Liberation Movement's use of consciousness raising conversations to expose data about a woman's life and thereby awaken women to new possibilities for their role in the family.
