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 a 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 and decision makers about an issue, to develop a power 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
NCG leaders Barbara Paulsen and Deacon James Hobart speak to how we build relationships, identify issues, and act to strengthen our institutions and community on this Wild & Free: A Battleborn Podcast.
