"It's a good time to take a fresh look at what has worked in times of trouble, and share what we have learned about successful campaigning that gives hope for the future. These times call for new and creative tactics in order to make changes to the status quo," says activist and sociologist Lakey.
George Lakey has been on the forefront of social change for decades, leading social change workshops on five continents and heading projects on local, national and international levels. How We Win details how we can achieve needed social change. His previous book, Viking Economics, discusses how Scandinavia has instituted successful social change--and how we can too.
In addition to his work as founder and coordinator of the East Point Peace Academy, Kazu Haga is the author of Healing Resistance and a core member of the Ahimsa Collective and a trainer in Kingian Nonviolence, a philosophy developed out of teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
A second event, "How to Make Polarization Work for Progress," with George Lakey, follows on Monday, February 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave, Oakland.
These events are co-sponsored by the Social Justice Committee, Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists and Social and Environmental Action Committee of the Berkeley Society of friends.
Books will be available for sale at the events.
