Join us for an evening with author George Lakey.
About the book
Addressing the current U.S. political turbulence, 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. 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.
George Lakey’s Manual for Direct Action was literally a life-saver for many during the height of the struggle for Black freedom and dignity in the 1960s. How We Win has arrived to us at another key moment in our human journey.
