Visions, Values and Voice: A Social Justice Communications Toolkit

Opportunity Agenda

View Website

The toolkit's guidance is based on the belief that the theme of opportunity can provide the basis for a narrative that unites social justice messages and constituencies across a range of social issues -- e.g., human rights, criminal justice, and education -- where opportunity is at risk.

The toolkit borrows from a large body of opinion and media research and the shared experiences of advocates, policymakers and communications strategists. Its focus is two-fold: to outline principles and strategies that support big-picture thinking about social justice communications, and to provide concrete tips and examples of communications and messaging tactics. The latter are presented on a series of detachable "Opportunity Flashcards" that provide short, easy-to-find advice and sample language on a variety of social justice issues.
