Movement Makers: How Movements Drive Social Change


What makes a social movement? Successful movements are citizen-centered and formed from the grassroots up. Philanthropy has an important role to play in driving social change through movement building. These organizations break through, capturing the interest and action of the masses. Learn how they inspire, educate and activate people to action — from social citizens who penned and passed 27 pieces of legislation for sexual assault survivors to a public health organization that has reduced teen smoking to single digits and a national group of coastal defenders who transform their passion to protect our oceans. Meet the movement makers.
