Power Mapping for the New Economy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Existing institutions and entrenched power structures often stand in the way of creating a new economy based on social, economic, and environmental justice. We will explore how to support movements by researching powerful people and institutions and creating power maps to understand their relationships. Using LittleSis, a free tool for conducting and organizing power research, we will share local victories aided by power research and participants will learn how to build maps for any local, regional, or national movement.
