In the age of digital activism, disinformation, and disillusionment, the progressive movement has drifted away from the fundamentals of organizing.
We’ve gotten good at chasing the next mobilization, the next viral moment, the next media splash. Nonetheless, our command of the art of base building, the rigor of good training, and of the curiosity needed for transformative conversations is weaker than it’s been in decades.
We’re about to change all that.
This organizing revival will bring us back to the kind of organizing that restores dignity, inspires hope, and transforms the human spirit, and allow us to scale it up so we can build a bigger tent—with room for the many who need the shade and shelter but have not been touched by our organizing (yet).
