How Big Organizing Mobilizes the Masses
Bay Area Book Festival - Freight and Salvage
Activism is undergoing a re-evaluation. Is protest still effective? What can work today? Micah White (co-creator of Occupy Wall Street and author of 'The End of Protest: A New Playbook for Revolution'), named by Esquire as one of the most influential young thinkers alive today, and Becky Bond (former senior advisor to Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign and co-author of 'Rules for Revolutionaries: How Big Organizing Can Change Everything') will offer guidance and action for a new era of social change and activism. If you've ever thought of joining a march or demonstration, White and Bond will make you smarter about it. Mother Jones' Monika Bauerlein moderates.
