Today's progressives have given up on organizing and now work for professional organizations more comfortable with the inside game in Washington. Meanwhile, promising movements like Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter cannot build enough power to accomplish meaningful change. In No Shortcuts, Jane McAlevey argues that progressives must adopt bottom-up organizing strategies that place the power for change in the hands of workers and ordinary people at the community level in order to rebuild powerful social movements.
