In many cases when doing advocacy, authorities are reluctant to engage in talks with civil society organizations (CSOs). Even if they do, they will most likely push for a compromise which is far from the original demand. Does this scenario ring a bell for you? Dialogue with authorities is more effective if CSOs can show that their advocacy goals enjoy the support of their community. This course will go through the basics of community organizing thus give you some guidance on how your communities can show a united effort for social change and exert significant political leverage for minorities.
