Communication for Change
By initiating participatory communication projects, Communication for Change strengthens voices of community members to influence social and economic issues important in their lives.
We define participatory communication as a process which enables people to speak for themselves. Though the modes of communication vary, in participatory communication the people who control the tools are community members -- not outsiders who mediate information and representation. Participatory communication is an exchange among individuals that values each person's perspective and voice. Such communicators can mobilize constituencies and give a stronger collective voice for change at many levels of society.
