Members of the Public Awareness Committee reach out to the general public as:
Photographers get photos of people holding up the sign “I support the Healthy Workplace Bill” and email the photos to email@example.com. The photos will get turned into a slideshow that may go viral.
Volunteers in this position scour the Internet and ask bloggers who write about workplace bullying to ask them to link to this website. They also push the bill on Facebook and Twitter.
