Example text

One thing we do know, however, is that established community organizing groups of different kinds provide important foundations for the success of movements when they do happen. 10 In the Civil Rights Movement, for example, sophisticated strategies of nonviolent protest were only available because these had been developed previously over time by members of an established organization, the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE). Leaders from CORE conducted the first nonviolence trainings in Montgomery during the bus boycott and elsewhere.

Community Development Is Not Organizing “Community development” seeks consensus, not conflict. In community development, leaders of local groups, directors of community agencies, and representatives of powerful institutions work together on efforts to improve 38 ● Overview local communities. They try to find solutions that everyone at the table can agree upon, drawing on the skills and resources at the table. Community development assumes that social change can happen through a collaborative “win-win” process and that significant social change can happen without struggle and contention—essentially the opposite of the perspective of community organizing.

While buying a Prius is not a gateway drug to organizing, lifestyle activists have at least indicated that they care about social change and have shown they are willing to do something to promote it. Conclusion The point of this chapter is not necessarily to critique alternate approaches to community engagement and change. Most of the strategies we examined have their place, each serving different purposes. And people working in these different traditions often provide support for organizing campaigns.
