This is a tool I developed as a 'quick and dirty' way to think about the formation of a coalition and community campaign operation when I had to hit the ground running in a given city or state. It also helped to jumpstart where to make my first calls.
Its designed to demystify certain anecdotal assumptions we make about potential community partners and allies while also ensuring a certain amount of variety in terms of strengths that are brought to the table for the coalition effort involved. For deeper study of coalition basics and strategies, I highly recommend the Midwest Academy book, "Organizing for Social Change."
