Although the focus of this resource is on strengthening nonprofits, to accomplish its goals, the Building Movement Project makes use of four core strategies:

• Changing the discourse and practice within the nonprofit sector to endorse social change and social justice values.

• Identifying and working with social service organizations as sites for social change activities in which staff and constituencies can be engaged to participate in movement building.

• Supporting young leaders who bring new ideas and energy to social change work.

• Listening to and engaging people who work in social change organizations—especially grassroots and community-based groups—to strengthen their ability to shape the policies that affect their work and the communities they serve
