A strategic orientation towards governing power can help us move beyond one-off policy campaigns, defensive fights, and single elections, to challenge the deeply entrenched, racialized, gendered, and exploitative status quo. It can help our movements advance towards the transformative change that our communities need.  In the Governing Power booklet we offer a definition of governing power, reflections on the strategies needed to get there, and case studies of organizations that are leading the way – in the hope of sparking new questions, insights, and strategic practice to strengthen our movements.  We encourage you to read the full booklet, either in PDF form or online, or check out the Executive Summaries in English and Spanish.
