Social Movement Ecology

On July 30, 2020, Alwiyah Shariff (Ohio Voice) and Tessa Xuan (OPAWL – Ohio Progressive Asian Women’s Leadership) led this training on the theory and application of social movement ecology (SME). SME lays a framework for organizations with different theories of change to recognize each other’s strengths and weaknesses and work together to produce large-scale social change.
This training provided participants with the skills, tools, and confidence to identify complex layers of approaches in social movement. Movement Ecology is important for all organizers and activists to understand. It allows all of us to be seen, heard, and valued.
