Summary

Why can't there be enough food, shelter, jobs, health care, homes, schools, education, safety and security for everyone? How can people work together to challenge the way things are, to help redistribute wealth and power, to create a more just and humane society? The answer is Creative Community Organizing. This latest work by legendary activist, musician and author Si Kahn, is a different kind of community organizing book. As with other books, including some by Kahn himself, it does outline many of the practical tactics organizers use. But it's also about community organizing as a way of thinking and a way of life.

Author Biography

Si is the executive director and founder of Grassroots Leadership, a non-profit organization that advocates for several causes, including prison reform, improved immigration detention policies, and violence prevention. Si Kahn and his wife, Elizabeth Minnich, live in Charlotte, North Carolina.
