Throughout the country, activists are making change and getting it in writing. Read how community groups have successfully developed and promoted more than 1,000 local policies that have: limited alcohol and tobacco billboards and liquor stores in low-income communities; won higher wages and more rights for workers under public contract; held corporations accountable for environmental damage; and brought youth into the policy-setting process. By using case studies that focus on community organizing campaigns that created local policy, Themba provides an invaluable guidebook for activists. Written for social activists, community organizers, and students of social and public policy, she offers cogent and clear insights into how these successes can be translated to other social justice organizing.
