Where vision meets on-the-ground action: A conversation with Eric Mann
How does the vision of creating social justice get translated into concrete action for change? What are the roles and responsibilities of the organizer in making change happen? This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave kick-off the fall membership drive with a special conversation with Eric Mann, whose recent book, Playbook for Progressives: 16 Qualities of the Successful Organizer, taps into the author's 40 years of experience working with labor, community, environmental and social justice movements. Mann is the director of the Los Angeles-based Labor/Community Strategy Center and cofounder of the Bus Riders Union.
