Every day there are thousands of people going to city hall, state houses, and even the halls of Congress asking to meet with legislators to talk to them about the issues that affect our people the most. Organizations are spending thousands of dollars to talk to legislators and push their issue. This work is important but only one small piece of the game. We realize that we don’t have enough power to win on our issue and that legislators are just navigating in their political reality. To move forward we have to change the dynamic with more tension, more protests, more pressure on legislators. In this workshop we’ll be talking about what role community organizing plays in building political power.
