Excerpt: "We have conceptualized the Community Engagement Continuum in order categorize a range of community based approaches in the anti-violence movement and to clarify the goals of engagement. The four points on the continuum- community outreach and education, community mobilization, community organizing, and community accountability- are defined by the level to which the strategies used lead to increases in the community's capacity to transform relations of power. The continuum model encourages a more strategic approach to any level of community engagement work and offers tools towards realistic step by step implementation."
