Crafting a narrative that motivates people to action is one of the most important aspects of any campaign or advocacy work.

It's also one of the most challenging. Year after year, we see great ventures fall short because the narrative they told never connected with their audience. We want to help you develop the skills to build a compelling narrative for your work through a training in the art and science of storytelling.

Public Narrative is a system of crafting and telling your story, developed by Marshall Ganz and honed over years in the field. It's the values-based practice of storytelling used in successful organizing campaigns from Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers to Barack Obama's campaigns, and many others.
