Through seeding and supporting LCN Global Hubs and Affiliate Organizations, we are building leadership at scale and growing the LCN Snowflake. These structures bring together LCN Members committed to building people power in their communities, and support them in building power with other members.
LCN Global Hubs, which have either a geographic or thematic focus, are voluntary groups, many of whom have evolved into leadership teams formed by LCN members.
Affiliate Organizations are LCN member organizations that have their work deeply rooted in the community organizing framework developed by Marshall Ganz.
More specifically, both Global Hubs and Affiliate Organizations use the organizing framework and are committed to:
Building capacity and leadership in a specific constituency.
With clarity on who their people are, they design and deliver learning experiences that are best suited for their growth.
Growing their own snowflakes and creating scalability.
The teams are committed to increasing their impact and developing teams that are able to lead and take the organizing work forward.
Adapting the organizing framework for their specific context.
Through their experiences, inquiry, and relations, our Hubs and Affiliate Orgs teams bring nuance and context to their teaching and practice of the organizing framework.
Being LCN’s partner – in thought and action – in a specific region or focus area.
This can include representing LCN in a certain region or focus area, partnering with us as specialists on specific contexts, and supporting LCN members invested in the Hubs’ areas of focus.

LCN Climate Justice Group
The Climate Justice Group came together after the Climate Justice Meetup organized by LCN in 2022. A dedicated team emerged from this event, passionately committed to fostering dialogue and collaboration regarding climate justice between regions in the Global South and North.
A Growing Network of Affiliate Organizations
Our network of 40+ global Organizational Members is actively developing leadership skills, fostering communities, and empowering individuals. It provides us with valuable opportunities to learn, gain insights into diverse contexts, and collaborate on a wide range of sectors. Through the Affiliate Organizations Network, we are cultivating stronger bonds with some of our members to directly support and amplify each other’s work, creating a formidable force for change.
We continue to grow and are excited to establish deeper connections with multiple organizations. One such partner over the years has been Haiyya.
Our collaboration with Haiyya on various learning spaces has been an exciting and valuable experience, providing our community with extensive knowledge. Haiyya’s work in India serves as an exciting case study, enabling us to showcase the organizing framework in action for our audiences. We will be continuing this collaborative learning journey, exploring Haiyya’s innovative adaptations to organizing in India in the coming year.
