Starting Feb. 9, you can participate in a webinar series designed to help you understand the principles of community organizing and apply them to your work in improving care transitions. The program, jointly sponsored by the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care (CFMC) and Organizing for Health, builds on principles developed by Harvard University’s Marshall Ganz, widely credited for having created Obama’s remarkably effective grassroots organizing strategy in 2008.

The series will include webinars on topics such as introducing and developing a “story of self,” building relationships, recruiting leaders, and developing a campaign. For communities in the midst of trying to create this kind of grassroots change in care transitions, the webinar will be an invaluable resource, and will feature experts from across the country. The series will run on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from February through April. The actual schedule is attached to this post. Community_Organizing_WebSeries_Flyer-1
