Community Organizing. Technical Assistance Packet.
Join Together, Boston, MA.
Community organizing can encompass coalition building or community development, each of which represents steps in getting something done in a community. Before undertaking a project, it is important to figure out the exact problem the community is trying to address. From there, it can be determined how to address it, who else will be involved, and how the steps to success will be measured. This packet provides tools, tips, and resources that will help communities undertake needed measures to reduce substance abuse and gun violence. It includes national organizations, publications, and community leaders who have expertise in community organizing. (Contains 13 resources.) (JDM)
