Rules of the principles for public outreach have changed over the years.
Gone are the days where local television and newspapers were enough to get the message across. These days it is now largely digital and social outreach. Instead of holding your own meetings instead go to their meeting and listen to them. And meetings in general have changed from the town hall gathering into block parties or virtual meetings. Use media to gain your audience and use the media that your audience is using.
