The most effective advocacy and community organizing work happens when groups and coalitions know where they stand and can leverage their organizational strengths to work for social change.

This presentation will:
 Introduce participants to AFJ’s free, online tools, Advocacy Capacity Tool (ACT) and Power Check for community organizing,
 Describe how they are being used
 Discussion of evaluation principles.

Using ACT, nonprofits and foundations can benchmark their advocacy skills, identify specific gaps and opportunities in their advocacy strategies, identify areas to build, efficiently focus resources for best results, and evaluate their capacity building progress.

PowerCheck makes it easy for nonprofits, evaluators, and funders to
assess their capacity for engaging in community organizing, planning successfully, and tracking capacity building progress over time.
