Martin Luther King spoke of the arc of history bending toward justice, and as progressive organizers we must constantly keep bending it. This requires vision. Power building. Strategy. Smart plans. Effective tactics, And compelling narratives that inspire action.
We must grow leaders and create nimble organizations that can leverage political opportunities and use them to achieve their vision.
We must build our strategic capacity as progressive leaders and organizations. We must build the power needed to win.
Erik Peterson, founder of Bending the Arc Strategies, brings nearly 35 years of organizing, training, coaching, management, and leadership development experience to helping progressive organizers, candidates and organizations build the strategic capacity needed to win a better, fairer, more just and equitable world.
