- Identifying and working with social service organizations as neglected sites for social change/justice activities where staff and constituencies can be engaged as participants in democratic practices for social change.

- Listening to and engaging people working in social change organizations, especially grassroots and community-based groups, to strengthen their ability to connect their vision and mission to practice.
