Blueprints for Change
Blueprints for Change is an open library of advocacy how-to’s put together by campaign innovators in order to help progressive organizers and groups up their game more quickly. The “blueprints” capture, communicate and inform innovative campaigning strategies and tactics. They are co-created and peer-reviewed by practitioners, organisers, and researchers who have experience bringing this work to life.
What makes this collection unique is they are drawn from campaigning practices that are emergent (new and not yet fully documented), currently in demand by campaigning groups and are field-proven (have been applied with success in prior campaigns). To reflect the spirit of constant learning and adaptation in the sector, these models are written up as fluid drafts (google doc format) so they can be updated over time.
