Organizing Rural and Reservation Communities for Dialogue and ChangeThis guide is a summary of the lessons that Everyday Democracy staff learned in their work with communities that took part in Horizons, a program of the Northwest Area Foundation aimed at reducing poverty and boosting prosperity. Reflections from Horizons organizers and participants are threaded throughout the guide giving the advice and tips further authenticity. While this guide was written for communities taking part in Horizons, the advice and tips are applicable to any community working on any issue through a dialogue-to-change effort.
