Don't Hold an Event Without Telling the Media!
Call, don't just write, your local media to alert them to your local events. The media love events that give a local angle on a national story. Help them out. Also call your local politicians and state legislators and congressional offices to urge them to attend or send a representative.

Here are general resources for events, including information on working the media:

Here is a guide to working your local media:

The kits above are focused on the Downing Street Memos, but the same techniques apply for events focused on demanding that Bush meet with Cindy.
