The Start Chart is a 17" by 23" guide to organizing for community action.
Abstract: The Start Chart is a 17" by 23" guide to organizing for community action. The Chart focuses on a five-step process: Define your issue; Assess; Choose a Strategy; Check; Take Action and Monitor Outcome. Various quotes and graphics help illustrate these steps.
Building on the Chart are thirteen informational pamphlets of practical interest: Publicity; Information; Organization; Facilities; Alliances; Membership; Money; Lobbying; Tricks; Economic Action; Demonstration; Negotiating; Evaluation. Each pamphlet is further broken down into sub-topics, tactics or methods.
For example, the pamphlet on Lobbying covers the following: analyzing your target; letter writing campaigns; delegations; briefs; presenting your case; things to check before proceeding.
The Chart is designed and produced by Community Alternatives with the co-operation of several other British Columbia action-oriented groups.
