Our strategy

Our theories of change

  • Pedagogical: Developing capacity for leading change. We connect ideas and people to enable leadership and power shifts globally.
  • Organizational: Growing structures and systems that help scale and sustain leading change globally.
  • Conceptual: Evolving the practices of leadership and organizing. We seed and nurture learning spaces for practitioners, educators and researchers to strengthen knowledge of leadership practice, and the understanding of how to teach it and spread it.

Coaching Support

We coach leaders, campaigns, and organizations on organizing practices and with their teaching and adapting the framework.

Organizing a campaign is not a walk in the park, challenges on structure, strategy and teams always emerge. Building curriculums to build the capacity of others and adapt the framework to various constituencies is also often much tricker than anticipated. At LCN we offer organizations and individuals coaching support to coach narrative, campaigns and organizing curriculums.

Growing a Community of Practice

We create spaces for our community to come together, connect, and learn from each other & their experiences on the ground. Our experience is one of our strongest learning resources to become more effective practitioners and educators. Every day, all around the world, our members are organizing communities to achieve change that they deeply care about, and adapting the practices into diverse contexts. Our Community of Practice provides the space for members to: learn with and from one another by sharing their experiences & questions; experiment & innovate by exploring new approaches, adaptations of our pedagogy, tactics and strategies; and build relationships and collaborate with other organizers and educators.

Connecting a global community of leaders for ongoing learning and empowerment.

Advancing leadership practices and expanding its accessibility

We document framework successes and provide opportunities for evaluating, further developing, and learning from adaptations.

In the past few months, we partnered with organizations and individuals in the field to collate and curate invaluable community organizing resources and present them to our members and the public to help expand their knowledge and expertise.

Our resource center, combined with our tailored workshops and diverse events that bring together organizers and experts from around the world, will help those aspiring to learn community organizing to create change in their communities attain their goals through time-tested, constantly evolving methodologies rooted in our pedagogy.

Seeding Global Structures

Almost in every field, decentralization brings autonomy, agility, and growth. At LCN, we believe that it also unleashes creativity, leadership development, and most importantly, it empowers those in the field working passionately towards their goals. We champion decentralization by supporting the formation and development of regional and thematic entities to bring the community organizing framework to a broader audience. At the same time, the journeys of those entities would provide the wider organizing community with a wealth of local knowledge, practices, and adaptations beneficial to the continuous development and advancement of our framework.

LCN is proud to be an umbrella for seven regional and thematic groups deeply rooted in our network and flourished through our unwavering support.
