Community Organizers

Check out this excellent response to Sarah Palin’s “community organizer” insult at WOC PhD

And great links for Laura Adams, Chicago community organizer and founder of Hull Settlement House at wood s lot

And, at the Globe and Mail:

“When Sarah Palin demeaned community organizing, she didn’t attack another candidate. She attacked an American tradition – one that has helped everyday Americans engage with the political process and make a difference in their lives and the lives of their neighbours,” Deepak Bhargava, executive director of Washington’s Center for Community Change, said in a release. “The candidates for president and vice-president should be working to solve our shared problems, too, rather than attack others who are trying to do the same.”
