To make change in civic life, learn to describe the alternative
Citizen University TV: Describe the Alternative

How do you create new power in civic life? Host Eric Liu's three-part strategy: "Describe the Alternative." Start by asking provocative what-if questions; then describe a better way and make it possible to lead to a new normal. Liu delves into how to flip the narrative that justifies current structures of power and privilege and shift ideas once considered fringe to the mainstream agenda. The founder of the National Center for Restorative Justice explores alternative approaches to conflict. Then, learn about a Seattle architect's BLOCK Project, which aims to put tiny homes in Seattle backyards to help house the homeless.
