AMANDA TATTERSALL “POWER IN COALITION”
How can we change things in an age in which governments are fixated on the bottom line and conventional protest rallies have lost their punch?
Coalitions can be important tools for social change and community revitalization. What makes them successful? What causes them to fail? Come and hear Amanda Tattersall, community organizer and author of Power in Coalition, discuss how community coalitions can be a powerful strategy for social change, organizational development, and community renewal.
