How can we build a multiracial and pluralistic democracy with an inclusive economy to defeat the rise of authoritarianism?
This question is front and center for People's Action Institute and our allies. How can we strengthen our democracy, when some feel it fails them, and others want to eliminate it?
In our new White Paper, The Antidote to Authoritarianism, People's Action Institute takes this crisis by the horns.
Through in-depth conversations with 27 of the most experienced and thoughtful leaders who build power among the multiracial poor and working class - current and former directors of national networks for social change, academics, philanthropists and on-the-ground organizers engaged in the defense of civil society - we explore current challenges and chart the path towards a shared solution.
People's Action Institute's Organizing Revival is our call to strengthen and extend the best practices of power-based community organizing across the movement for social justice in the United States.
PEOPLE'S ACTION INSTITUTE
People’s Action Institute's mission is to advance a long-term agenda for racial, economic and gender justice by investing in powerful state and local organizations and campaigns that win real change in people’s lives.
We believe that power comes from organizing and action, so we invest in scalable base-building and leadership development, digital organizing, direct action, nonpartisan civic engagement, independent grassroots fundraising and issue campaigns that move people on their values and self-interest.
People’s Action Institute’s long-term goal is to reverse growing economic inequality by building an economy that expands opportunity for low-income families, with an emphasis on racial and gender equity.
