I teach classes and workshops on community organizing. In January 2015 I started teaching an undergraduate class on organizing for Roosevelt University.On April 11, 2012 two veteran community organizers visited a class I was teaching on social change. Jitu Brown is the Education Organizer for the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization and Michael Klonsky is a professor of education at DePaul University, leader of the small schools movement and working to stop public school closings. They spoke about how they got started in civic work, the lessons they learned and what they are fighting for. It’s a riveting and often moving 90 minutes. Watch it here.
