After reading the introduction, write down a response in which you outline how you would complete the document. Discuss topics such as how you would demonstrate the subject's relevancy and what technologies you might use to cause a tangible change.

The votes have been counted, and the five topics we will pursue for our Online Community Advocacy Project are:
