Public Lab respectfully draws on multiple rich lineages of organizing with a site-specific focus for community self-determination. >_We lift up indigenous movements for land defense, poor people's struggles for land reform / tenure, the lived expertise of HIV patients that changed medical research, and Public Lab's own predecessor organization Grassroots Mapping as ancestors in this work. We lift up the methods and ethics of Freirian organizing, action research, participatory planning, and public participation geographic information systems (PPGIS) as we develop methods and ethics._ **Public Lab's community science projects are place-based and led by local residents**. This is for several reasons, including: 1) people near the site through time have priceless lived experience; 2) governance is geographic by what environmental regulations are in effect and which electoral district you're a constituent in; and 3) place offers a container for multiple standpoints to offer views on the same place. **Stand for what you stand on!** This page is a place to collect and organize resources on organizing. Visit the [organizing tag page]( to see the latest community posts about organizing on Public Lab, and get updates on this topic by following: Follow Organizing _Lead image from the [Appalachia Barnraising in 2017]( On this page you can: Learn about different methods for community organizing, including tactics for place-based organizing and organizing-related activities Join the conversation Ask a question, answer a question, or follow future questions on organizing Post an issue brief that describes your local place-based concern Read stories from organizers doing community science Find further reading and resources on organizing # Methods for community organizing ## Tactics for place-based organizing We recommend this sequence of steps, even if you skip a few, for attracting and organizing a group of people around place-based research. ### Tour the area Move through the area together + [How to organize walking tours]( from the School of Planning, Design and Construction at Michigan State University + [Benefits of a community bus tour]( + [How to make a Green Map cycling tour]( video (and [in Chinese here]( _Image: [Emmett Institute at UCLA School of Law](, [CC BY NC]( ### Mental mapping Invite each person to draw a mental map of landmarks, personal situated memories, infrastructure + [Host a collaborative map drawing workshop]( ### Historical land use mapping Start investigating what's happened previously on this site as the best way to focus future study designs + [How to find out past and current uses for an area of land]( _Image: [Manitoba Historical Maps](, [CC BY]( ### Aerial mapping Capture a portrait of the landscape with you and the group in it.
