As the federal government moves to decrease its role in social programmes that are designed to support communities, it is incumbent on grassroots and local community movements to promote social change and empowerment in their local communities.

Community building articles are a great way of getting the message out to people about the initiatives being taken to support and strengthen different community groups.

Such articles should seek to represent efforts to strengthen and expand community building initiatives, connect these practices with social development and seek to describe the relationship between different community activities with desired policy outcomes in the social space. They will encourage the social development that is needed to support families in communities and will enable genuineness, legitimacy, and valuable knowledge to progress social goals in a wide variety of settings and circumstances. Articles help to promote community research and education which is crucial to the success of community building efforts.
