“Insights for Effective Grassroots Organizing”

August 21, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until August 28, 2019

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.

Glen summarized a profoundly democratic model of putting “We the People” on top, as Jefferson and our nation’s founders had intended. This validates the strategy of using grassroots organizing to build movements to solve social, economic and political problems on an ongoing basis, rather than assume that occasional voting can suffice.

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.
