Community organizing enables your congregations/community organizations to have a voice in the policies and programs that impact your community. The first lesson that you must learn is that every government and/or corporate practice that impacts your community is established as a result of a policy decision. Programs evolving out of public policy decisions are designed to meet the immediate needs of individuals in your community. These programs may or may not meet the needs of your families. Therefore you must have an organized voice in these policy and program decisions.
