INFOGRAPHIC: Breaking down power

What do the Civil Rights Movement, March for Our Lives, and #FixtheGap in Baltimore schools have in common?

They all came about because a determined group of organized people identified who held power — including policymakers, industries, and the members of the community they lived in —  and leveraged their knowledge of the breakdown of power to drive change. 

To create change, you need to understand who the players are in your community and what kind of influence they have. 

Without power, change can feel — and is — impossible. Power builds change. 

Would you like to build power in your community?
