Making change happen?
The Common Good has examined many types of activism on the left and the right as part of our mission to encourage effective participation in our system.
On September 13, we will provide the opportunity to hear from the latest potent force in citizen activism – INDIVISIBLE founders Ezra Levin and Leah Greenberg. Last December these former Congressional staffers, helped draft INDIVISIBLE, a powerful “how to” brief on ways to make members of Congress listen up.
Their smart advice, based partially on the successful methods of the Tea Party, went viral and since then the INDIVISIBLE PROJECT has been a prime force behind new found citizen activism on the left. This type of activism proved very powerful for the Tea Party. Will their efforts also help turn protest into policy?
Join founders Ezra Levin and Leah Greenberg for a rare opportunity to see them together as they provide an exciting conversation about the energy and power of citizen participation – and how this may play out in the coming months and the midterm elections.
