Empowered networks are key to creating change. Here are the three key pieces:
Movements are born by creating activists. Political scientist Erica Chenoweth has shown that just 3.5 percent of the population guarantees systemic change.
Movements grow through community and solidarity. Sociologist Doug McAdam has shown that social connection drives supporters to action.
Movements succeed with strong collective action. Renowned scholar Sidney Tarrow calls disruption “the strongest weapon” of social movements.
