Are you looking for effective ways to build power and create change in your communities?

Then sign up to our Orientation to Organizing on August 18th 9am-12pm ET! It’s a 3-hour introductory session on the organizing and public narrative practice developed by Marshall Ganz at the Harvard Kennedy School and his associates, and one of our most popular sessions at LCN.

We will be drawing on a campaign by We The People Michigan in the United States as a case study on how organizing practices are used in action.

Who is this session for?

This session is perfect for people who are looking for effective ways to create change in their community, and want to gain a basic understanding of what organizing is and how it looks in practice.

We also encourage you to invite other members on your team, organization, and community to join you in learning together – having a shared language of organizing and leadership is powerful when you are working together!

People who are familiar with organizing and narrative pedagogy, but are looking for a refresher on the basics of the framework, will also find this useful.

What will I gain in the session?

Our approach to change is an adaptive community organizing and public narrative practice that equips people with the leadership skills and capacity to respond with the agency to the challenges of today. It is born out of decades of organizing experience, complemented by insights of social science, and tested through training campaigns on the ground.

In this session you will gain:

  • An introductory overview and basic understanding of the five practices of community organizing using a real example;
  • The opportunity to learn and connect with other organizers and leaders from around the world;
  • An introduction to the Leading Change Network and our programs

We will take you through the six leadership practices of our community organizing framework – public narrative, relationship building, structuring a team, strategizing, and moving people to action – that are core to turning the resources of our communities into the power they need to achieve the change they want.
