Stories from the Field: Building Solidarity Across Silos

Two months ago we launched our Stories from the Field series with a case study about developing board readiness for advocacy.  This month’s submission takes us to the state of Illinois where a newly formed state-wide coalition is working together in unprecedented ways. Taking on new contracting regulations from the state, Illinois Partners for Human Service, took a savvy approach to building voice, power, and relationships among service providers and associations.  Through their story, Whatever it Takes: Building Solidarity Across Silos, they share valuable lessons about what it means to create solidarity across boundaries.

If you’ve got a story to share about how your organization is working to incorporate advocacy, organizing or civic engagement into your service work, we’d love to feature you!  Email Caitlin Endyke at cendyke@demos.org to express your interest.
