What are the capacity building activities AWC engages to assist with local coalition development?
What are good references for:
Policy & Advocacy: How do we equip local coalitions to be strong advocates for effective policy? What can we do? What are prohibited activities with public funding?
Data & Evaluation: How do we assist local coalitions with increasing the capacity to collect the best local data for decision making? How does evaluation development enhance the coalition process?
What is the role of qualitative data collection? How do we capture the stories of others and share them in the community and beyond the community? [Thelan Pekar’s approach or Andy Goodman’s “Free Range Thinking?”]
What are the essentials for coalition communication? When is it too much? When is it not enough? How do we keep from getting lost in the forest of social media?
