Tool: Raise An Absolute Ruckus
This is one of 15 civic engagement tools to Shift the Country.
Quick Overview: Raise An Absolute Ruckus
Spectacle creates attention and helps drive and focus public agendas from the local to national level. There are ways to raise a fuss, create a spectacle, and call attention to needs and issues - or drive the narrative. Attention and pressure on needs can help drive transformative public action, and to drive government focus and action from the local to the national level. Agendas can tie to funding, laws, policies, paradigms, stakes, values, public health action, etc. Other tools can help drive the agenda: community conversations, coalition-building, storytelling, etc.
