The future of the pursuit of social justice is a critical issue of the day. Emerging “next-generation” leaders are challenged to create 21st Century relevance and engage new, younger and more diverse constituencies in their organizations and causes. Social justice agencies in the Bay Area and nationally are grappling with new realities in a rapidly evolving field. New leadership and communications strategies, tools and tactics are needed to strengthen a sector weakened by decades of attacks on issues of equity and justice. The Levi Strauss Foundation’s new initiative – Pioneers in Justice – will support and invest in new leaders poised to shape the next wave of social justice work. In this session, Pioneers leaders share their stories, emerging ideas and innovative approaches to collaborations and cross-issue work as well as social media and communications tools.

  • Triangles are intended to be the only sheet of paper in the client’s hands during a question and answer session. Each theme or support item represents information the client already knows well (we probably gave him a longer briefing paper during his preparation). We want the audience to hear anything that’s on the page; we don’t want them to be distracted by anything not on the page. The triangle functions as a cue sheet : A question is asked. The speaker glances once at the sheet of paper and picks the theme most relevant to the question. He then bridges to the theme, states it, and then completes an answer using support items and/or other themes (examples later.

Winning Together…Winning Alone “ The power and potential of alliance building can be seen in various efforts emerging in the social justice sector.   Diverse communities are joining forces to address issues of common concern, including racial and economic justice, civic engagement, immigrant rights, education reform, community development, and beyond. These alliances are not temporary coalitions that disappear after a single campaign, nor are they abstract exercises in solidarity. Rather, they are ongoing efforts to strengthen work and achieve long term success by engaging partners on a deeper level. In the process, alliance building promises to bolster the foundations of the broader social justice movement.” “ Alliance Building In Action: Reports from the Field” (Public Interest Projects) “ Working separately toward a common end with the mentality of us first, them next has not been effective and never will be.” The United Congress of Community and Religious Organizations (UCCRO) is a grassroots-led multi-ethnic and multi-cultural human rights alliance marked by a emphasis on building trust between partners from diverse communities .
