    An outreach worker is usually a person who works with disadvantaged people - vulnerable adults, children, drug users - there are thousands of areas in which outreach workers can work.

    I'm not quite sure how it fits in with the Electronic Frontier Foundation - they are fighting for people's on-line rights so perhaps all internet users are seen as disadvantaged and in need of an outreach worker?

    The Wikipedia definition seems to fit here:

    "Outreach is an effort by individuals in an organization or group to connect its ideas or practices to the efforts of other organizations, groups, specific audiences or the general public."

    Mr O'Brien's job is to help his organization spread its ideas and promote its goals; he "reaches out" to other organizations, government, and in this case the media!
