KEY COMPONENTS OF SUCCESSFUL SOCIAL MOVEMENTS

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
"For me, the most important lesson
[of the Freedom Movement] is that by respecting the fact that fellow activists could passionately disagree over strategy and tactics—yet remain allies—they strengthened SNCC and the Movement as a whole."
From Bruce Hartford's article in the current issue of Urban Habitat.

School Counselor Conference at Stanford

I will be giving a workshop at this conference (described below)
You Can Fight City Hall: How Everyday People, Acting Together, Change Society. Kathy Emery, San Francisco State University.

What can one individual do to make change? Quite a lot, actually. The first step towards empowerment is realizing that there are many roles from which to choose in order to contribute to building a movement for social justice -- and that you must choose the role that suits you. The second step is to understand where we are in history. This session will allow participants to explore the Civil Rights Movement as a model of activism, evaluate the Occupy Movement and discuss the implications for individual action today
