About the Author:

KIM BOBO is the founder and director of Interfaith Worker Justice. She was a trainer with the Midwest Academy for ten years and is the author of Wage Theft in America. JACKIE KENDALL, Executive Director of the Midwest Academy, has worked extensively with senior citizen, student, and citizen action organizations and coalitions at the local, state and national levels. STEVE MAX has organized for over four decades in civil right, labor, community organizations and coalitions. He is a lead trainer and the designer of the Academy s Economic Education Program.

From Library Journal:

This is a compendium of powerful tools and information for grass-roots citizens' groups from leaders at the Midwest Academy, which has been training people in direct action organizing for social change since 1973. Efficiently and lucidly organized, the book should be an invaluable manual for individuals seeking to achieve justice and control over their lives through effective social and political group cooperation. There are excellent sections on outside resources, and the words for almost two dozen theme-related songs provide almost a touch of levity in this cogent, comprehensive work. Highly recommended for academic and public library acquisition.
