Building Diverse Community Based Coalitions


This five-page article describes the importance of building diverse community based coalitions. The article walks readers through a series of steps from "making a plan" to "making the pitch" and "confronting conflict." A worksheet at the conclusion helps readers strategize about who to engage in their coalition work.
