Popular Education for Movement Building: A Resource Guide. 2nd Edition.
Illenberger, Abbie, Ed.; Wallach, Jason, Ed.
Popular education is "political education for everyday people." It is"people coming together to discuss problems of injustice and inequality and learning how to confront these problems collectively." To be effective in movement building, this guide calls for people who can act in concert to fundamentally change the world. It offers some tools, ideas, and materials that can be used to build consciousness among people to become conscious of commonalities, uncover confusing myths, and provide a clear path to the future. Following an introduction that offers an overview of popular education, movement building, and Project South's activities, the guide is divided into the following five parts: (1) "Project South's Critical Issues Toolbox: Welfare in the Global Economy"; (2) "Criminal Injustice and the Growing Police State"; (3) "The Changing Face of Health Care"; (4) "The Small Working Groups"; and (5) "Appendices." Each part contains articles, essays, and resource information. (BT)
