In Their Own Words


To better understand what makes for effective community engagement, we went right to the source. What draws someone to this work? What skill set do community organizers need in order to succeed? Sure, strategic thinking, an eye for politics, and the ability to spot strong leaders are necessary, but we found these alone are not sufficient. Follow our new video series, “In Their Own Words,” and hear directly from leaders about the personal experiences that drew them to the craft of organizing.
