On October 14, Grassroots Change hosted aTwitter chat to capture and share lessons and strategies from the successful national movement for paid sick days. The chat featured three key leaders from the movement: Ellen Bravo of Family Values @ Work, Melissa Josephs of Women Employed in Illinois, and Vicki Shabo of the National Partnership for Women & Families.
Six important lessons emerged from the Twitter chat. Leaders working on a wide range of issues from violence prevention to food policy can use these same lessons in their own grassroots movement building.
Read about the lessons.
