A few years ago, Building Movement Project traveled to Battle Creek, Michigan, where they helped nonprofit organizations in the community begin their transformation from standard service providers to agencies of social change. Recently, the coalition put out a video that documents their group’s success. Watch as one man speaks to the benefits of community involvement, as he tells the story of how he went from client to board member in one organization.
“Collective action can lead to positive outcomes”, says one staff member who believes the program from BMP helped to establish a path towards positive social change in the Battle Creek community. If you’d like to check out how you can begin this process in your own community, head to our page on Social Service / Social change, where you can find information, tools, and resources that can help.
