As part of our ongoing Flood the System Organizing schedule, Three Rivers Rising Tide is hosting a two hour workshop on Mapping the Power Structures that influence local and regional politics.
Powermapping is an essential tool in fighting for justice. Knowing how the system works (not to mention for whom the system works), give us the ability to create campaigns that get to the root causes of injustice in our communities.
Using the public research tool LittleSis, we will learn how to research corporate structures, follow the paths of finance and political donations from corporate backers, and look into interlocking corporate boards.
The Workshop will be lead by Molly Gott, an organizer with Littlesis, and a keen researcher, who has helped uncover the networks of corporate and political power in St. Louis and elsewhere.
Please join us!
