The work of community organising begins with one-to-one relational meetings.
The aim is to intentionally build understanding, respect and sense of reciprocity between individuals within our communities and member organisations and our active participants.
Relational meetings form part of the organising cycle that includes,
group meetings or 'table talks' where we share stories,
discernment, where we look at the issues raise and decide what is systemic, what is 'winable' and what we are prepared to fight for,
then there's research into the issue where we bring together academics, peak bodies and others to dig into the issue,
we then plan one or series of actions that can be anything from a small meeting with decision-makers to large 'town hall' style meetings where we have decision-makers present alongside community leaders and our storytellers who share their stories publicly.
This leads to outcomes and change for the better on the issue.
