About How We Win

 

In a book of dramatic stories George Lakey draws lessons for today from a century of successful direct action campaigns by civic groups, women, labor, civil rights, LGBTQ, immigrants, environmentalists, religious groups, and students.  The reader learns a variety of activist tools and how they built powerful movements that won victories despite sometimes-violent opposition.

In addition to strategy and tactics the author reveals best practices for fostering cooperative, inclusive leadership and unity with diversity.  He explains how campaigns can become building blocks for a movement of movements that transforms an unjust society.
