Affecting Public Opinion - Are You Making It A Priority?

The work of most organizations involves affecting public opinion and public policy. We demonstrate, vigil, leaflet, do civil disobedience, bring in speakers all to draw attention to the issues we are involved with.

The following lists are items that indicate whether your focus is the community at large or the individuals who come to your presentations or see your events. My observation based on years of contact with organizations across the United States involved with a variety of issues is that we often focus on personal action with little attention paid to reaching out to the entire community.

Things to do to promote affecting public opinion in your community.

Signs that out reach to the community is not a priority.

A friend of mine, a fellow activist said, "Those of us in the 'Angel Squad' forget that we have to sell our ideas just like anyone else." Good luck in your work.
