Watch webinar recording via ReadyTalk > (please note: this recording is only available through March 15, 2011)

Every organization needs an effective media and communications plan – whether for organizing and mobilizing its base or to push specific campaigns; but how does a grassroots organization create one with its leaders and community base? In this webinar, CPA will share their member-led process for their groundbreaking study, "Check, Please!" that focused on the health and working conditions in San Francisco's Chinatown. They will also share lessons learned about what it takes and how to start creating your own organization’s media and communications plan. This webinar will help organizations who are in the process of developing their own media and communications efforts, or those considering a process and approach that reflects their values of being community driven.
