Leading Change: Leadership, Organization and Social Movements

This chapter provides a theoretical and practical treatment of the core methods of organizing and community engagement. Rooted in 28 years of organizing experience, and informed by insights of social science and teaching at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Leading Change explores the practices necessary for strengthening the effectiveness of civic associations, community organizing, and social movement responses to the critical challenges of our time through continual learning, capacity building, and leadership development.
