Insider's View on How to Develop Political Activists

Written by Featured Organization on Monday, 21 July 2014 18:43.

New book first to provide an in-depth look at why some civic organizations are better at attracting – and retaining – activists in the Internet age. In a time of rising inequality and polarized politics, civic and political organizations around the country are in a pitched battle for power over government. As these organizations mobilize for the 2014 midterm elections and the 2016 presidential elections in an atmosphere of declining trust in government, many are struggling to recruit and retain the activists they need to win. A new book by Hahrie Han, associate professor of political science at Wellesley College, offers an insider’s perspective on what makes some organizations better than others at this task.

Despite the time commitment and financial investment that come with the territory, more than 25 million people nationwide have opted to start a microbusiness – a company with five or fewer employees. One in every 10 Americans works in a microbusiness, according to the Sam’s Club/Gallup Microbusiness Tracker, a quarterly survey of more than 850 microbusiness owners that provides insights into their economic and emotional concerns. The Sam’s Club survey indicates that women are opening 46 percent of today’s Main Street businesses – from restaurants to daycare centers – far greater than the number of women owned businesses that are over 20 years old.

Voter Suppression: The Lines Are Drawn and The Fight Is On

Written by Peter Grear on Thursday, 17 July 2014 19:36.

Educate, Organize and Mobilize: Last week we shifted our focus to voter mobilization for November 2014.  This week, as we look back we’ll also take a look at the current state of affairs in the fight to protect the voting rights of all US Citizens.  As we discuss current court activities concerning voting rights, please remember that nothing that the courts decide between now and November will replace the need for a massive voter turnout and that such a turnout will only happen if we, the people accept the responsibility for making it happen.  I’ll also update my outreach efforts to get Black Republicans to respond to voter suppression and my suggestions for our communities to get involved in protecting our voting rights.
