Strong BIPOC-led c4 organizing is foundational to securing progressive wins now more than ever in a way that catalyzes transformative political change and accelerates people power. Movement groups are organizing their power by growing a progressive base of support, demanding accountability for policy change, and engaging in elections to increase the political influence of BIPOC communities.
Narrative change can be pivotal in shifting the political ecosystem by serving as an advocacy tool to support healing following decades of forced trauma in BIPOC communities, perform as a monitoring agent to ensure government accountability, and center the demands, leadership, and experiences of BIPOC people. Increasingly, power building organizations are using narrative change work to explicitly name and address the political roots of racial injustice and inequality. How have organizations used narrative change campaigns to build a broad base of support, exercise electoral influence, and translate electoral engagement into policy and cultural change?
This session will explore how narrative strategies can strengthen electoral influence and power-building work, with a focus on transforming the political landscape and public opinion towards racial justice.
