Excerpt from Preface:
WHY WE BELIEVE IN ORGANIZING AND BUILDING POWER
We both came of age during the rise of the conservative agenda in the United States. Yet, over the last 25 years we have seen first hand that organizing and building power for social justice is not only possible in this political climate – it works. We have seen community-based organizing campaigns win changes in social policy, improve the administration of programs that service millions of people, preserve and protect our environment and force companies to pay living wages, provide benefits and pay for community benefits and improvements....
We wrote this book to share the lessons and the tools that we developed while successfully organizing low-income people over the course of 12 years. We believe that others can apply these lessons to their organizations and issues and achieve similar results.
