Public lands activist Lowell Krassner organized campaigns for the
Northern Forests by inviting friends over for a potluck each week.
Sitting around his kitchen table, they planned the next week's actions.
Krassner, who passed away early this year, knew well what
every successful activist knows: You don't win battles for wild places
by appointing a committee. You organize. You organize your friends,
your neighbors and in your community.
Such results-oriented organizing is the vision guiding Project ACT: the
Club's new grassroots organizing initiative.
Project ACT invites chapters and groups to recruit, train and support
activists who will take responsibility for planning campaigns for the
Club's priorities (local and national) at the grassroots level by
organizing our members in the wider community.
We are currently seeking pilot chapters and groups for an
"Organizational Development" project -- to develop models of successful
and sustainable organizing.
