APPLY: Power-based community organizing might be used in situations where community members identify problems at the structural level.
ADAPT: I recently watched a documentary called 'The Water Front' which tells the story of how community organizing was used to fight against local officials to make water more affordable for residents in the Highland Park community. After years of experiencing water shut offs, increases in the cost of water, and struggling to get access to water, local residents created a grassroots movement to fight for what they believed to be a basic human right. These residents and community organizers used strategies in protesting, marches, and public hearings to put pressure on government officials to create change within the community.
