Power Mapping

November 19, 3:40-5p, Lindell 301

People interested in promoting positive social change–through public work, civic action, advocacy, and other vehicles–need to be aware of who else cares about their cause, and the political and social power structures in play. Power mapping gives participants a way to think about different kinds of power, and a set of tools to access the power needed to make things happen.
