Today more than ever, organizations working for clean water must engage their communities to make critical progress on water issues. Ensuring clean water access for all is a worthy goal – and communities will rally to support your work if engaged in a process that incorporates their ideas and concerns. This new River Network training series provides essential strategies for grassroots organizing and effective community engagement, and tactics to grow community support.

  • Do you work to bring all voices in your community to the decision-making process, yet have a hard time engaging a particular sector of stakeholders?
  • Do you worry that your 501c3 status limits your local advocacy?• Are you unsure whether your story truly appeals to and connects with those you’re trying to engage?
