Activists who attended the Our Kids, Our Future Coalition policy workshop in Bridgeport on Friday were asked to write the policy issue they care about most on a sticky note and then place the note on a graph according to their estimate on impact and winnability. Speakers pointed out that some issues are easily winnable but don't have much impact while others can have a huge impact but are incredibly difficult to achieve. Attendees were urged to consider setting multiple goals, including some that are easily winnable, so a campaign can gain momentum.
