The premise of the Community Organizing and Family Issues (COFI) model focuses on parents by preparing them in a unique manner to become leaders in their respective communities. These individuals are by far the most invested in making sure their children grow up in safe, healthy, and prosperous environments. In this workshop, we will build the foundation of the individual goals and find commonality in the collective and community needs to establish priorities towards their work plans. This then becomes the basis that will help us elevate the voices and decision-making power of those that are so often not involved in the major decisions impacting their communities and their lives. Through a series of interactive exercises and visual aids we will introduce River Network’s Drinking Water Guide as a tool to guide engagement around this topic and demonstrate how to synergize efforts amongst various stakeholders.
