FDL Book Salon Announcement: 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right
We’re delighted to announce that FDL Book Salon will feature 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right on Sunday, August 13 and Sunday, August 20, both at 5:00 PM EST/2:00 PM PST. Author John Javna will be joining us in the duscussion thread on August 20th.
In June, 2006, the Roots Project adopted this book as our Field Manual. I can’t speak highly enough of the book and of its principle author, John Javna, with whom our Roots Project community held a wildly popular question-and-answer conference call open to all Roots Project members.
The book begins, as we in this community do, with a set of values. Then it highlights very succinctly and accessibly many cultural and political actions individuals or small groups of people anywhere in the country can take to promote progressive change in their communities.
No matter what state, county or locality you call home, no matter who your elected representatives may be, you will find easily achievable actions you can take to promote and embody your progressive values in this book. The book includes actions and ideas appropriate for anyone, from the newly politically engaged to the experienced organizer and activist. It’s that good.
Let me take a moment here to thank John and his allies for putting this terrific book together, and for making himself so available to this community. Let me further repeat my frequent encouragement to all here that you obtain a copy of 50 Simple Things You Can Do To Fight the Right as soon as you can. You won’t regret it, and you can join us for a helluva discussion as we work together, block by block in every state, to take back our country.
