Community-led Action

Moving the work forward

On This Page


Action is often the most visible form of community building. It can create powerful results when done inclusively and in alignment with a community's values and vision. Sometimes action is tried and true. Other times, there is an element of risk and experimentation. Community-led Action can be done through a small project that links to something bigger or through a community-wide approach. 


  • Plan and implement: Mobilize people with a shared, achievable goal. Communities will gain the confidence and experience to take on more comprehensive efforts in the future. 
  • Vision: Create a long-term, inclusive community vision and plan. Unite smaller efforts, bring them into a coherent whole, and build in processes for successful results. 
  • Align and stabilize: Coordinate the project to keep the work moving, the various parts aligned, and the wider community engaged.
