Advocacy & Justice

Advocacy & Justice Services

Dimensions tools support social justice leaders in deepening effectiveness in community organizing, relationship building, growing partnership and maximizing collective impact in movement and coalition building work.

At Dimensions we understand the work of standing up for justice to be about building and leveraging power in relationships.  Our community building resources deepen leadership capacity for listening to, empowering and making room for the voices of those that remain unheard.  Our resources deepen agency and capacity among targeted communities and provide opportunities for leadership divestment from harmful systems, behaviors and cultures that restrict the experience of collective liberation and wellbeing for all of us. 

Dimensions learning communities create space for connectivity between and across leaders who are committed to the work of social and political transformation. Our tools support activist leaders in developing their resilience and capacity to be resourced and refreshed over long-term social justice work. We create learning environments for our activist leaders that are compassionate, meaningful, and centered within liberatory practice.
