News Conference Ideas
to help launch your enforcement effort (scroll to find on the "Talking Points page".)
Consider other routes to generate media coverage other than news conferences such as exclusive story ideas: Give local media outlets story ideas to allow reporters to develop a more in-depth story. Consider "saved by the belt" profiles; victims' family interviews; what local teen/SADD groups are doing to educate peers, etc.
