The Technology and Culture of Building Power | Matt Price & Jon Stahl

We are in the midst of a historic shift from one era of social change
advocacy to another.  A world of expert-driven, direct mail oriented
organizations is giving way to nimble, data-driven, learning
organizations that place relationship building and mobilization of
supporters at the heart of their work.  There is a model emerging
here, and in this paper, we attempt to describe and document it
through the stories of five midsized organizations.

Got comments?
"Engagement Organizing" is about raising questions and starting a
conversation.  What do you think?  Does the model speak to your
experience?  Do you have other lessons to share? How do we move the
work forward from here?  Let us know.
