This manual is for grassroots activists seeking social, political, environmental and economic change at all levels of organization ->local, state and national. The handbook has been used by Midwest Academy since 1973 in its organizing and activism seminars. Central to the Academy and the manual are three guiding principles: that for people to organize and seek change effectively they must win real improvements in peoples' lives, get a sense of their own power, and alter the relations of power. The main topics presented in the handbook are direct action organizing, organizing skills, and sources of support for organizing. The new edition was inspired by the transition into a new millennium, which prompted a new awareness of the need to bring activists from diverse movements into a unified whole. Annotation c.
