Organizing Framework

Organizing for our goals

What is organizing?

  • Organizing is bringing purpose driven people together to achieve a shared objective.
  • Typically the basis of organizing is morals and values (not economic or political persuasion) to bring about a desired outcome or introduce a new idea.
  • Organizing is based on formed relationships rooted in shared values and division of labour.
  • In summary – organizers don’t want to win ‘the game’ – they try to disrupt/replace the game.

WHY: If we want better representation more Nigerians need to be in the political parties to: (i) participate in shaping focus & processes (ii) contribute funds & spend time and resources on the party (this way parties won’t need godparents) & (iii) become delegates and candidates

ACTION:

  • Join a party
  • Share the experience (how easy was it, what was the process, are you now a member) (note to site developers – how best can this feedback happen?)
  • Plan: what you want to achieve within your party
  • Execute
Not sure you should take action? You are a primary stakeholder in Nigeria. Do you know what is expected of you as a citizen?
