Our communities have power. But that power can only achieve the change we want to see in our province if we are organized. In community building work, we are called to lead by advocating toward positive changes in government policy or working together to stop something harmful. We need to understand public policy and how it impacts our systems and communities. Plus, we need to know how to organize, whether it's finding a common agenda, coalition building, leading an advocacy campaign, or working with government. These are essential elements to achieve our economic, social, and environmental vision for Manitoba. This is an introductory learning opportunity to learn about why organizing to change policy matters, and how we advocate for change.
