Not only that, but he provides proof on how he and his team have gotten congressfolk to ...more

This book as real as it can be and straight to the point- there is no beating around the ...more

A practical guide to community organizing to fight global warming. Gives practical examples of how to get the word out and get people to participate. Written by the grassroots organizers of Step It Up, a nationwide day of rallies that was organized in less than a year.

a great guide to organizing around global warming issues. it's nice not to have to reinvent the wheel, but rather borrow other peoples' wheel. i wish i could have finished it, but i couldn't because one of my irresponsible interns stole it from me :[
