Members of equality organizations are stakeholders in the change they seek to achieve. As stakeholders, they can become agents or change, or activists. Grassroots organizing and community-based activism encourage a higher level of buy-in from members in a community or in an organization. Community-based activism animates collaboration and the mobilization of resources. The adage, “Think Globally, Act Locally” illustrates the place where people can make a difference — where they live, in their particular community. And, the sum of these individual impacts creates the global change. A working knowledge of community-based activism is necessary for leadership within a social change organization.
