McMorris Rodgers and Republican Leaders Unveil New Initiative, America Speaking Out

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, and other House Republican leaders unveiled a major new initiative, America Speaking Out, at a press conference today.

America Speaking Out is an official effort of House Republicans to involve the American people in creating a new policy agenda for the 111th Congress.  Using the best of social media, America Speaking Out enables citizens to submit a policy solution, promote their priorities, debate the ideas posted by other Americans, and share the conversation with your friends and neighbors via Facebook and Twitter.  America Speaking Out will become the home to an unprecedented online conversation between Americans and those elected to represent them.

As Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, Rep. McMorris Rodgers is tasked by her colleagues to lead their New Media outreach.  She will be playing a major role in promoting America Speaking Out and maximizing its effectiveness.

“All across America, New Media technologies – such as websites, blogs, online videos, and social networking sites – have greatly improved communications in our personal and professional lives,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.  “Now it’s time for New Media to have the same impact on America’s government.  I believe that America Speaking Out will be a revolution in the use of New Media to engage our constituents and build a positive agenda for America’s future.”
