Grassroots Leaders at 2013 OTL Organizing Summit

Tuesday October 22, 2013 –

At the 2013 OTL Organizing Summit in Los Angeles, grassroots education organizers participated in a training hosted by the New Organizing Institute. They were introduced to a powerful narrative structure called the Story of Self, the Story of Us, and the Story of Now, a model developed by Marshall Ganz that helps organizers learn to tell compelling personal stories, connect them to issues facing their community, and make a powerful call to action. In this video, Cheyanne Smith from Make the Road NY and Pecolia Manigo from the Parent Leadership Action Network practice telling their stories of self, us and now.
