Organizing a community applies democratic ideals and practices to specific contexts. These include neighborhoods, schools, religious congregations, civic associations, union locals, and other organizations that want to fully engage people in participation in public life.
In this book, you will discover a brief introduction to what is variously called "faith-based," "congregation-based," and "institution-based" community organizing. Grounded in a composite case study of an actual organizing effort, the book shows how local communities can be organized for power. It illustrates key organizing concepts and strategies through stories of real encounters with leaders, communities, and powerful opposition figures.
