I helped form a political party in Wisconsin called Progressive Dane. The party has had success on the local level, electing people to the City Council, County Board, and School Board. This piece discusses some of what I learned doing that work.
Please join us for a discussion and book party for The City is the Factory:New Solidarities and Spatial Strategies in an Urban Age, on November 3, 6 to 8 pm at the Murphy Institute.
The book is co-edited by Miriam Greenberg and Penny Lewis. Contributors will be joined by local organizers to discuss today’s urban-based struggles for change. What are the new kinds of organizing that we’re seeing emerging in cities today? What challenges do they face, what potential do they have?
