In the era of COVID-19, an economic crash, climate change, and rising white supremacy, how can our federation tap into people power and win big changes for ourselves and our students?
Join us for a three-part reading group of “No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age” by Dr. Jane McAlevey. A labor organizer turned academic, McAlevey gives us both a practical guide and a set of underlying principles to understand why organizing matters more than any other available strategy to grow power. We will discuss how these ideas can be applied to our struggles at work and our goals to change the world for the better.
