Community Social Capacity
Definition: According to Mattessich and Monsey (1997), community social capacity is “the extend to which members of a community can work together effectively”
Application: community social capacity could be use by community members to take initiative to meet communities need. In the video “Metropolitan Avenue” the residents were able to accomplish their goals through strong community social capacity.
Adaption: community social capacity theory could be applied to create factory workers coalition that could work together to keep the systems in shape so that the factory owners don’t take advantage of the workers. In the video “the honor of all” we saw how the chicken workers used their community social capacity to get their demand, of paid leave and health insurance, heard and taken care of.
