NONE of the positive changes that have improved our nation’s political or social lives were gifts from Congress or big business. Women’s right to vote, labor unions, environmental laws, civil rights advances for many kinds of people, and many other accomplishments were won ONLY because of smart, courageous nonviolent grassroots organizing.
The August 2019 episode of “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV program will help you become more effective in working for the political, economic and social changes you want to see.
This month’s interview features three experienced grassroots organizers — Holly Gwinn Graham, Bob Zeigler, and Glen Anderson – sharing insights that will strengthen your ability to organize. All three of us briefly discussed nonviolence as a crucial method as well as our goal for society. We emphasized and shared examples of bringing more kinds of people into our movements, using the arts and music, being proactive and creative, devising smart outreach strategies, and communicating with the public.
I typed up a thorough summary of what we said during the interview and added more insights and helpful hints to help you become more effective at organizing grassroots movements. To read that summary, click the following link:
