About this grant

Communications Leadership Institute’s SPIN Project provides accessible and affordable communications consulting, training, coaching, networking opportunities and tools in response to the needs of community organizing groups. Funding will provide partial support for the SPIN Project’s primary training forum, the SPIN Academy, which will place an increased emphasis on helping groups understand the frames within which messages are heard and understood by the American public. The SPIN Academy will also work with participants to develop messages to more effectively communicate goals.
