Why build a grassroots network?
- We must organize to change public policy.
- Grassroots organizing is an essential strategy to help us achieve short-term and long-term policy reforms.
- Together, we can advance issues, challenge failed systems, and become respected participants in decisions that affect our communities.
- Together, we can influence public awareness, political will, and decision-makers.
- We need to educate decision-makers, and the best way to do so, is by telling your story.
