The goal is to persuade the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to establish a United Nations Goals Advisory Committee for the purpose of developing detailed proposals how the goals of the UN may best be implemented and/or supported by the City and County of San Francisco. How do we do it? We build a civic / academic / business / government coalition.
The Plan to achieve our goal is sketched out in the overlapping steps listed below.
Draft Resolution: A draft of the proposed resolution establishing the UN Goals Advisory Committee is already available. The coalition will modify the draft as needed.
Initial Outreach: We have begun outreach to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and so far the response has been positive.
Together and Apart: T&A is the technological innovation that will bring the disparate elements of the coalition together.
Core Team: The next step is to build a largely women's A-team for outreach.
Collective Impact (CI): The core team will be aiming to implement CI, a sophisticated organizing strategy.
CCI and the Backbone: Collective Communication, Inc (CCI) will provide Voices of Humanity social medium as the communication component of the Collective Impact strategy. Additionally we will need to find a strong Backbone organization to take the leadership role as we go forward.
Follow Through: The obvious next step will be to bring in first the other cities from the San Francisco Bay Area, and then to expand nationally and globally, creating a massive unified network of cities.
