Organizing for Social Change

Sunday, Apr 19, 2015, 4:00 pm

This workshop will give an introduction to community organizing methodology with discussion of the continuum of action and how to integrate organizing models to your current work. The fundamentals of organizing for social change cut across all issues and can help organizations and congregations be more effective in building local power to change social policy. We will focus on the importance of strategic relationship building in community organizing work. The workshop will provide new tools in recruitment, team building, and leadership development, addressing the importance of one-to-ones as an essential piece to building collective power to win concrete improvements in people’s lives. There will be specific attention to the importance of the role of faith in building social movements.
