Networking for Social Change

Networks constitute the foundation of political power; networking for social change is essentially the intentional linking and nurturing of already established personal relationships for a common purpose. As I observed in my prior learning portfolio, genuine community organizers simply articulate the beliefs people already hold, promote an agenda consistent with those beliefs, and provide opportunities for individuals to act on them.

A society that is uninformed cannot address a problem; a society that is misinformed cannot address it effectively; a society that is disinformed will probably make it worse.
