Creative Community Organizing: A Guide for Rabble-Rousers, Activists & Quiet Lovers of Justice

by Si Kahn
£13.99   paperback  Berrett Koehler (2010)

Creative Community Organizing: A Guide for Rabble-Rousers, Activists & Quiet Lovers of Justice by Si Kahn Why can't there be enough food, shelter, jobs, health care, homes, schools, education, safety and security for everyone? How can people work together to challenge the way things are, to help redistribute wealth and power, to create a more just and humane society? This latest work by legendary activist, musician and author Si Kahn, is a different kind of community organizing book. As with other books it does outline many of the practical tactics organizers use. But it's also about community organizing as a way of thinking and a way of life. In other words, focus on the end goal and then determine the best strategies, tactics and methods to achieve that goal. It will help established community organizers become more creative and innovative, encourage them to question established principles and decide whether or not they still work. Those new to the field will discover a whole new way of looking at the world - they'll gain a new sense of empowerment, understand that things don't have to be the way they are, that the world can be more fair and humane - and that they can live and work in ways that help make that happen. It is American so will have that context.
