On March 24th, from 12-1:30 p.m. Eastern, People’s Action will be holding an event with a set of special guest speakers from the narrative change field. We’ll be exploring how some of our peer organizations are thinking about incorporating narrative change strategies into their campaigns, the broader ecosystem of institutions engaged in the battle of big ideas, and what people think constitutes a “win” when it comes to shifting the narrative.
