If believing strength in numbers is how we win long-term change, then coalitions are a natural step that many organizations take. But what makes a coalition able to sustain inevitable conflict? Under what conditions should coalitions be started or ended? How can coalitions begin with clarity and intentionality?

This workshops covers the fundamentals of creating a strong coalition. There are steps you can take to develop clear expectations, community agreements and conflict resolution practices that will keep your coalition strong for the long-haul.
