Starting At The Dept Of Human Services

1st party claims from more citizens in more places than ever before are being collected. After collecting thousands of 1st party inputs and claims from recipients and those in need.  We all should support the collecting of the 1st party claims from the impacted people; not the narratives of others.    Bring Your 1st Party Claims To Meet 

Relationships & Trust Triggers In Organizing People

In our study of relationships in effective organizing, we found factors like how long the parties had exchanged 1st party claims. So we now realize that the first trust trigger to productive organizing is the mutual communication agreement. In this case the mutual relationship agreement is between the one collecting and the one sharing their 1st party claim. The mutually agreed communication agreement is the starting place. From that start we add the policies for handling the incoming claims. With the combination of designated collectors, handling policies and the 1st party claims; we create the 2nd trust trigger, which is step by step understanding. Next it’s the equal access to put your individual claims into defining problems and validating solutions; that creates the 3rd trust trigger, willing engagement! The length of the mutual relationship between the collector and the claim provider adds history, and more confidence. Next we found that when we format claims and input to be con…

Transferring The Management Of Activism

Have you ever thought about what happens to the complaints you give someone and then that someone changes? The policies and chain of custody for our 1st party claims is very important. The plans and policies that cover 1st party claims of all kinds should be regularly adjusted. The claims of victims should dictate who and when for taking the lead on solving the problem. The directions for problem solving must dictate the directions and rights for providing advocacy.  Poor management of the 1st party claims will downgrade the relationship between the trust triggers and public participation. The effects of trust trigger relationship downgrades has reduced our mass organizing and mobilizing capacity. Since we’ve learned the conditions that hinder 1st parties from giving voice to their problems and claims; we’ve been solving the problem. A part of fixing the problem is to stop the lack of continuum in handling 1st party input. Organizing is fed by the claims and aspirations of individuals…

The Fight For Accountability In Organizing

Direct 1st party claim connecting is advancing even amid much opposition. The opposition to accountability in advocacy comes from some of the advocates. Those among them that didn’t collect and that don’t have our 1st party claims are the ones in opposition. Because they were allowed to take the lead on some issues without having the 1st party claims; they want it to continue. That legacy is one filled with not being able to tell the difference between having and speaking about the 1st party claims. The claims allow you to identify the best start point for organizing and validation. Collecting the claims directly lets claimant’s audit and track success. When others get to speak without your direct claims, they can validate solutions that don’t work for you. When direct claims are missing, stolen or manipulated, it stalls the ability to see weaknesses and count successes accurately. Too many of us have been on a bad diet of pre-packaged and overly processed input. The future of organiz…
