Building Movement Project Resources
* Social Service and Social Change: A Process Guide: A guidebook that was developed for staff and board members of non-profit service organizations who are interested in learning how to incorporate progressive social change values and practices into their work. It uses a step-by-step process to identify how to address systemic problems through social change work within the context of their usual services and activities, and how to decide which strategies and actions will work best for them. * Making Social Change Case Studies: Additional Web Resources: A compilation of valuable resources that support and engage a deeper understanding of the organizations profiled in the Case Studies.
* Making Social Change: Case Studies of Nonprofit Service Providers: Serving as a complimentary publication to the Process Guide, this set of case studies was developed as a response to numerous requests from groups looking for real-life examples of the often-challenging process of incorporating social change models into social service work.
Resources from Other Organizations
*Integrating Civic Participation Strategies into Service Delivery Organizations – An NCLR Toolkit: This toolkit was designed to support the NCLR Latino Empowerment and Advocacy Project (LEAP) to measurably increase Latino electoral participation, but it can be applied to any social service/social change group seeking to increase civic participation as part of their organization’s work. Included are a variety of tools including surveys, intake forms, flyers, workshop guides, and petitions to assist in the integration process. (Developed by the National Council of La Raza)
* Mobilizing Communities for the 2010 Census: A cohesive resource site of information to help prepare your organization for the 2010 census. A specific highlight is a toolkit with everything a nonprofit needs to begin to educate and mobilize its clients and constituents about the Census, including fact sheets, sample census questionnaires, PowerPoint presentations, photos and more. (Developed by Nonprofits Count! a project of the Nonprofit Voter Engagement Network.)
*BuildtheWheel.org: This site aims to provide a space where community educators and organizers can build upon each other’s practice, experiences and reflections in popular education and leadership development to strengthen the movement for social justice.
