Community Organizing

Good organizing is all about building relationships so that you have a network of
supporters who will back you when you need to get something done.  One can see
the community organizing efforts in the public arena as well as in the Catholic Church
or just about anywhere there is community strive or tension.

With the popularity of social media, though this will never replace the face-to-face
contacts, it can help build a much larger audience than one could do in person
and is a quick and easy way to get information out to many people at once.
