Erase Threat Perception

VOLUME 7: HOW ARE WE HOLDING OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS ACCOUNTABLE? 

This workshop will address the ways in which we can hold our political leaders accountable to the community. Oftentimes, we are hopeful that change is coming when candidates inspire us on the campaign trails, however, many fall short on their promises. We have gone far too long without having an organized accountability measure for our beloved elected officials. In this three-hour session, participants will learn the following:

  • Strategies to make the key stakeholders respect our voice year-round; not just during election cycles

  • Identifying a return on investment (e.g., raising money, phone banking, door-knocking)

  • Ensuring that elected officials don’t lose sight of their vision

  • Understand the combined power of responsibility, empowerment, and accountability in government relations

  • Helping community members realize that they’re more powerful than those in office

  • Establishing a system of support and accountability 


“The kind of role that I tried to play was to pick up pieces or put together pieces out of which I hoped organization might come. My theory is, strong people don’t need strong leaders.” ~ Ella Baker
