Community meetings or town halls are a great way to educate, network and organize around testing issues. Panels of speakers can inform the community about high-stakes testing and its consequences and inspire people to take action. Forums also provide opportunities to promote authentic assessment and related school reforms. Organizers can identify and collect contact information of people willing to participate in further campaigns and actions.

House parties are a good way to bring people into the testing resistance and reform movement. They can be private (invitation only) or more open. See here for guidance on how to organize a house party.
