DataCenter, along with the National Organizers Alliance, will present the findings of our study, Sustaining Organizing: A Survey of Organizations During the Economic Downturn at the US Social Forum today. The report is an analysis of 203 surveys conducted with organizations engaged in community organizing and movement building work and studied the impact of the recession on work and resources. If you’re unable to attend our workshop, Historic Moment for Funding Social Justice Organizing in the 21st Century,
you can download the report here (pdf).
Check out the article in National Organizer’s Alliance Ark Magazine about the Sustaining Organizing Survey!
Stay tuned for additional local events this summer and fall where we’ll discuss the findings of the Sustaining Organizing Study around the country and online. Updates will be available on the blog: Sustaining Organizing.
