The Network for Action Strategic Projects provide opportunities for NFA participants from diverse backgrounds to engage in collective action that furthers our shared goals.
At the first Network for Action meeting in 2011, 12 diverse projects were identified as NFA Strategic Projects. Most returned for the meeting in 2012, along with four newly emergent projects that were added to the mix.
At the 2013 NFA, many of the continuing Strategic Projects will meet with network members again to share updates on their work, highlighting the ways workshop participants can engage in future action.
