Real Power … Real Change
How to shape broad-based power for the common good
Sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement
A workshop on analyzing power relationships and building collective power through relationships will be led by Michael Stanley, a community organizer with the Metro Industrial Areas Foundation. This introductory workshop will help participants understand and use tools developed by one of the country’s oldest and most effective community organizing traditions.
