Community organizing and advocacy are often described as intrinsically related yet fundamentally distinct strategies to bring about societal change. While health funders are increasingly active in advocating for public policies that advance community health, investments in community organizing have been less widely pursued. Highlighting the grant making experiences of The California Endowment, this webinar will review the basic goals and methods of community organizing, consider opportunities for improved linkages between community organizers and health advocates, and explore how health funders can support community organizing efforts.
