No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age
Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age Book Club is a public book club.
"The term ‘organizing’ is thrown around a lot in social justice circles. But what is organizing? How is it different from other types of social justice action like advocacy or mobilizing? and how do we do it? Starting this spring, Triad Workers United will host discussions about organizing based on the book No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in a New Gilded Age by veteran labor activist Jane McAlevey. Join us, and let’s learn how to organize together to win improvements for our coworkers and communities in North Carolina!"
