Shift the Narrative Playbook

Seize the Narrative playbook cover.

Our playbook on advancing housing and racial justice in the Bay Area, based on field-practiced and research-tested strategies and messages.

Our Playbook builds from local lay of the land, field analysis, a robust regional research program — as well as collaboration and coordination with state and national narrative shift efforts — to offer concrete guidance on how to advance housing and racial justice here, locally and regionally.

The Playbook reviews:

      • What is Housing Justice?
      • Why Narrative?
      • Making the Case for Housing Justice: Nine Narrative Strategies
      • Putting it All Together: Message Template and Key Audiences
      • Longer Examples and Sample Messaging
      • Next Steps
