In order to change the world, movements and activists have to move beyond simply responding to crisis after crisis, outrage after outrage. This workshop offers practical tools for thinking strategically about grassroots campaigns. It includes a discussion about how to build activism and organizing on core values and transformational demands, how to identify and approach allies and opponents, and how to select tactics appropriate to the broader strategic goals and unifying vision. This workshop is open to both individuals as well as small groups working on common projects, but all participants must have a social justice orientation.
