We are thrilled to share with you an opportunity to learn more about the strategies and practices that lie behind today’s most successful advocacy campaigns, based on Networked Change in Canada, a groundbreaking report Broadbent Institute published earlier this year. The report, based on a U.S. study by authors Jason Mogus and Tom Liacas, features Canadian case studies of campaign innovations in this country.
This participatory webinar will provide a deep dive into the principles outlined in the report and into one of the Canadian case studies profiled in the report. Our goal is to share a model that can be learned and replicated by other campaigners for how to blend grassroots participation and organizing with disciplined central planning to win. The webinar is an opportunity for you to learn more about how to put these ideas into practice.
