How do we organize to change society in a more just and fair way? How to we bring together a diverse array of activists, students, and union members? These are the questions at the forefront of many activists today and is at the centre of Jane McAlevey’s new book, No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age. Please join students, community members, and union members for a 4-part book club discussion on McAlevey’s latest book. This book club is a collaboration between the Stand Community Organizing Centre, Stop the Cuts, and Turning the Tide Bookstore – the goal is to develop our understanding of communities and unions working together to achieve a more just society, and to put that understanding into action. This book club also serves as an opportunity to build your network and share ideas – all are welcome!
WHAT: Read the first two chapters of No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age for our first book club meeting on September 19. On October 17, read the third and fourth chapter. On November 21, read the fifth and sixth chapter. And December 5, read the last chapter for book discussion.
