Howard Dean and Chelsea Green Publishing Utilize iPhone Technology to engage and Mobilize Americans in Healthcare Reform Debate.
Date:8/17/2009

First ever-activist toolkit included with an e-book using interactive iPhone technology.

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Vermont Governor and DNC Chairman Emeritus Howard Dean has once again found a new way to use technology to empower grassroots activism. Dean has teamed up with Vermont-based progressive publisher Chelsea Green to release his new book, HOWARD DEAN'S PRESCRIPTION FOR REAL HEALTHCARE REFORM: How We Can Achieve Affordable Medical Care for Every American and Make Our Jobs Safer (www.deanshealthcare.com), not only in print but also as a first-ever iPhone application that includes an ebook with an interactive activist toolkit included.

Howard Dean has been a pioneer in the use of technology for grassroots political organizing. Chelsea Green's introduction of the book as an iPhone application literally puts the power to engage and take action in the healthcare debate in the palm of the user's hand. This new, unique application transforms the experience of reading a book into direct activism in one of the most critical domestic issues America faces by incorporating features that enable readers to instantly contact their member of Congress, sign a petition in support of the public health insurance option, and engage their friends through key social networking tools.

Using the activist toolkit readers can:

Contact their member of congress. The application uses either the user's current location or zip code to generate telephone numbers for the corresponding with Congressional representatives. Once the information is entered, the user can call the Member's office right from their iPhone.

Sign the petition. Join more than 350,000 people in signing Governor Dean's petition at '/>"/>
