Looking for advice

My friend Ian of Shrink the Buddha asked a question that I think is worth discussing;
If a large, massive network were being set up to increase participation in government and foster policy discussions and encourage grassroots action among the vulgar masses, how would you set it up to include especially low-income populations?

My first thoughts were that improving access to the internet at public libraries would be good, and that if "computer labs" could be set up at shelters and the like that would be good. Obviously a coherent and extremely concise break down of the legislation which was current in the houses of Congress would be necessary, as well as concise arguments for the proposal and against it...

What do you all think about this?
