Networking and Coalition Building in a Box

Networking happens when individuals or groups come together to share information or resources or get to know each other.  It is a gathering of information and people all for a common purpose.  For non-profit advocates with limited resources, networking helps  to expand the available resources.  Coalitions are similar, but they’re more action oriented.  A coalition is a group of individuals and/or organizations with a common interest working together toward a common goal.  To help disability advocates network and build coalitions, the Disability Advocacy Support Hub (DASH) has put together a resource toolkit on networking and coalition building.
