Organizing Upgrade

A+ A A-

BvsA-low-res-eng-posterA brief timeline of communications in the grassroots organizing sector since the year 2000.  

2000 -
Q: How many communicators does it take to screw the status quo?
A: Zero.  Communicators don’t screw the status quo, they screw us by taking money we could be spending on organizers.  

2003
Q: How many communicators does it take to screw the status quo?
A: 1/2.  If 1/2 of one person faxes out enough press releases, eventually the status quo will be screwed.

2007
Q: How many communicators does it take to screw the status quo?
A. One.  If one person does some magic framing and gets onto myspace/facebook/twitter, sooner or later the status quo will be screwed.

2010
Q: How many communicators does it take to screw the status quo?


A. One for every organization and alliance. To develop narratives, to lead with values, to get 1000+ facebook/twitter/instagram followers, and to screw the status quo!   2012
