Our Organizing Process
We help congregations and organizations develop a deeply-rooted justice strategy – not one that lurches from issue to issue, but one that builds a base of leaders, develops an analysis of the pressures affecting families in an institution and crafts a viable response to those pressures, working together with other congregations and organizations.
The organizing process at an institution includes:
- One-on-one relational meetings
- Developing Core Leadership Team
- Conducting a “House Meeting” campaign – a campaign of small-group gatherings to identify new leaders and potential issues for action.
- Conducting research actions – Meetings with key experts about an issue, to develop an analysis and an action plan.
- Public Actions – Large gatherings to win specific commitments for action.
- Evaluation – Reflecting on what people have learned, what we did well, what we could improve for the future.
