Community Organizing: People Power from the Grassroots

By Dave Beckwith & Cristina Lopez

Community Organizing: People Power from the Grassroots focuses on defining and developing the ideas behind community organising.

This is followed by what community organizing is and is not, its principles, some rules and some advice on defining an action strategy.
