DISCOVERING & MERCHANDISING HEROES IN THE ISSUE MOVEMENT!
Meet a local hero,early in his career, become his P.R. agent by being a journactivist. EVERYBODY WINS!
Last week on the POVERTY LIST, (where people share conversation,) this gal comes on who's like Joan of Arc. Rebecca talks about SECTION 8 housing for the poor and even has wild new ideas about how to make it a profitable business for a team of poor people who buy a bldg and go into offering section 8 housing. She extrapolated the possibilities for poor people to make business with the idea.
I like extrapolation, appreciate that kind of research so pervasive that she is able to INSPIRE invention, originality and money making. Plus I note the subtle power in her brief jottings. Being a professional writer & astrologer psychic, combined. I spot the Joan of Arc DNA strand in her musings on the laws surrounding poor people's housing and she discusses what she would do to fix things. I do a web page called HEROES so I want to add her to it somehow, but also inform my fellow lister people how to spot a leader. For the purposes of course of the R(EVOLUTION.) I quickly write the list:
"The vigor and charisma in Rebecca's VOICE. She's researching arcane areas of life like homelessness, joblessness, what GOV does for the disenfranchised sector. I SEE A HERO IN THE MAKING. Send me your local clippings there in Tennessee, I volunteer to be your P.R. girl. You're an easy sell to mags, newspapers. Reporters LOVE somebody like you. Not that you care, you're more focused on the problems in society but I type l00 wpm and habitually write on the subjects of the Poor, their needs. Being a senior, I don't hit the streets or drive any more or fuss up much about section 8 issues or freezing feet on the homeless in the park cuz I cannot drive to that park and hand out socks but I can do volunteer PR for an energetic cuss like you. Each of us on the freegan list should spot in this girl someone we can do freebie P.R. for and if we write, do pieces on her to submit to newspapers ...well that would be in her city. OR, each of us might find some activist worth promoting in our own city and do the same. Create little expose type articles, submit to head editor there, to get newspaper to let you be a STRINGER for them, so they read everything you submit or research. You work your way into journalism, or more fun, maybe, easier. SUBMIT your PR releases, really well written, to JOURNALISTS at that newspaper who are desperate for HUMAN INTEREST STORIES. Either way, keep those tales of the heroic battling RECESSION comin' in the public's face day in day out so that groups get started, initiatives start to get voted in...or just a consciousness and awareness of special needs and some charitable interest gets started. Bug under my PERSONAL bonnet is daycare for latchkey kids whose mothers work a few days a week, who don't have any child care... i.e. the concept of fund raising for scholarships to extant daycares so aid is handed to needy single mothers. ( THE DAY CARE CHARITY)
I had a schizy boy, couldn't get any psych unit in LA to see him, none! Dede Hirsh Ctr was 75$ hr, back then 1996, and kid got worse and the little freebie ctr said he was 'too off' for them to see him. THALIANS at CEDARS SINAI was 50$ hr. So PSYCH HELP for STRUGGLING PARENTS w. schiz kids, not available even at charities, another one of my concerns.
There are fascinating issues that make GREAT SUPERB NEWSPAPER STORIES and they go unseen, unknown. So ISSUE PR is an interesting pro bono volunteer field. And hey, you meet every reporter at every new paper, some nice friends and socializing there, fershure!
Then there's OUR OWN posting of articles on this hero over at online journals, ezines and such. You can easily get a good graphic of her, a portrait shot. (HOW TO DO HTM ARTICLES WITH GRAPHICS. ) Blog for free or pay 3$ a month to Go Daddy type web hosts.
The idea is, you discover an activist, (Like Rebecca, to the left here,) You write her up, submit to local daily, get her story & picture in newspapers, get her booked on tv shows, you build her into an ISSUE PLUGGING Activist star. Like Erin Brockovich vs. City Hall. Or say you meet GANDHI when he's just got a small law office in Pretoria in 1929...You get in on the ground floor. That's how you get a new broom to sweep. WE strand by strand PUT THE STRAW on the stick until it's a hefty broom. Then we USE that broom to stir up the dust, the issues & get PUBLICITY which helps the ISSUE LOOM & the HERO FUNCTION. Each time you can post the hero's name on the internet and it comes up in a google, he's getting more and more famous. THEN take his book which you co write with him and GET AN AGENT, then a PUBLISHER. And get a cut of the book action. See "HOW TO BE A WRITER" WEBSITE ARCHIVE. Think if you'd met that girl Julia Roberts played, the one who worked for L.A. Lawyer who discovered toxic dump sites, sued for millions, ERIN BROCKOVICH ! She worked in a law office 4 miles from here where I live. If I'd written ERIN up a few times, early in the game, helped her appear in the VALLEY DAILY NEWS, helped her write her book, found her the agent, publisher, and also hand written up a contract to get 20% of her action, you'd be sitting on a million so activism pays. Doing charities also pays. See LAUNCH A CHARITY and YOU GET TO SALARY YOURSELF. You get to be a saint. If you are single some wealthy admirer loves, marries you. FUNDS YOU!
Dear Rebecca, Send me your clippings kit, with tales of your first hand adventures in an autobiographical /journalish TONE, text or htm, let's see what there is to work with, sign me ex English Major at UCLA ... Anita Sands Hernandez
How hard would it be for a progressive senior with time on his/her hands to audit these YAHOO lists, progressive in tone, spot leaders in our own cities, help them to do E-zine articles, so they get a really fat google when literary agents, reporters, publishers google them, you know build an ERIN BROCKOVICH or a DANIEL SHEEHAN, (early journactivist, broke the CIA's back when USA / Reagan was trying to destroy Nicaraguan liberal gov...) Find someone already consecrated to the MOVEMENT. Dedicated. NEWSWORTHY. Build them, edit their writings, be their PR person, get articles posted at ezines on them, on the issue of course. See: BUILDING HEROES, MERCHANDISING them, MAKING THEM A BRAND NAME. Remember the rising sea lifts all boats.
