Title: Higher Power: Strategic Capacity for State and National Organizing
Author: Wood, Richard L.
Subject: religious communities
community organizing
Abstract: This chapter studies an organizing effort of the PICO National Network, which organizes in poor, working-class, and middle-class neighborhoods in the United States, mostly in urban areas. PICO engages in "faith-based community organizing" to generate democratic pressure to advance the interests of its nonelite, highly multiracial participants. The research reported here goes beyond other studies of grassroots organizing through its focus on efforts to influence policymaking on health care, public safety, education, immigrant rights, and housing at the state and national levels.
