Supporting Organizing Work Connecticut (SOW-CT)

The Supporting Organizing Work in Connecticut report is focused primarily on gaps, barriers, and potential solutions for SOW-CT to consider when seeking opportunities to support the field of organizing. Data and information were gathered from a survey and interviews, as well a from SOW-CT's August 2019 convening of funders and organizers. There are four key findings culled from the information gathered:

  • Current funding practices and systems can create barriers to accessing resources.

  • The Connecticut organizing ecosystem would be strengthened by deeper relationships and alignment between philanthropic institutions and organizing groups.

  • Organizing groups and the field would benefit from more relationship and collective strategy building opportunities.

  • The sustainability of organizing groups would be deepened by opportunities and investments that support deepened analysis, organizing and management skills, leadership development, and wellness of organizers and community members.
