What is the current state of capitalism in the global political economy? How are our campaigns for racial, economic, and gender justice impacted by neoliberalism and imperialism? What will it take to build a movement in such despondent and challenging times?
Four grassroots organizers from POWER (People Organized to Win Employment Rights) stepped up to the challenge of answering these questions for their own organization. They wrote this book to share their analysis with the movement. Coming from their experience as organizers in a multi-racial membership organization of low-income tenants and workers in San Francisco they engaged in study and wrote this book by and for activists and organizers around the country.
