At the heart of our organization is the idea that we need to build collective power in order to make real change not just at the level of policy, but also at the root.
Our organizing model emphasizes building the broadest and deepest base among our constituencies. We do this through knocking on doors, engaing in community based research, and holding events. We emphasize developing strategic, tactical, and political leadership as demonstrated by our political eduction series and regular trainings for members and staff. While we build power at the grassroots level, we need to shift the public debate around issues impacting our communities in order to change. This change must first be envisioned before we can bring it about. lastly we build alliances that enable us to amplify our power and our message.
