“Community organizing focuses
on bringing power to a community
and empowers communities to create change.”
-Brian Kettenring,
Center for Popular Democracy

Community organizing can be a complex process. To be successful, it’s important to prepare for success – by understanding an organization’s readiness to engage and empower constituents and having access to appropriate organizing evaluation resources. AFJ developed the free, online PowerCheck tool for assessing capacity and the compendium of Resources for Evaluating Community Organizing (RECO) to address some of the challenges involved in evaluating community organizing.
