Growing Grassroots Power is at the foundation of WhyHunger’s approach to building and supporting effective movements. Developing supportive partnerships, rooted in trust and solidarity, and allying with grassroots leaders and organizations requires a long ­term commitment to the capacity building and resourcing of grassroots actors. This section shares practices, methods, projects and stories that illustrate grassroots-centered capacity building, institution building, coalition building, allyship, spacemaking and campaign development.
