Philadelphia Forward Robocalls Win Pollie Award

Philadelphia Forward has turned public policy communication in Philadelphia on its ear and generated national attention for its efforts.  Last year, it was a Golden Dot award as the nation's top local Internet campaign.  Now this year, the American Association of Political Consultants recognized our "robocall" effort -- "Pushbutton Activism: Tax Reform in Philadelphia" -- with a "Pollie Award " in the area of Local Grassroots/Issue Advocacy/Public Affairs.  National awards are nice, but we are trying to make local change and that means that our constituency for change must make it clear that WE WANT TAX REFORM NOW!
