Issue, Geographic, and Strategy Caucuses:
Facilitated group discussions and networking
Community Organizers' Caucus
Regardless of the policy objective, organizing remains a critical strategy for mobilizing neighborhood residents to influence major decisions that affect their quality of life. The need for organizing to keep pace with rapidly changing conditions in metropolitan regions is a theme that was highlighted throughout the summit. This caucus offered a place for organizers to compare notes, tactics, and strategies about the challenges and opportunities they face. Organizers from all levels of experience were encouraged to participate in the caucus to meet and think together about how to make the most of the emerging regional equity movement.
