Political Organizing 101: Structure-Based vs. Self-Selected Organizing
/

This series will cover a range of issues concerning political organizing. In this episode, Vince Emanuele examines the introduction to Jane McAlevey's book, No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age. In this segment, Vince discusses the fundamental difference between organizing in a structure-based setting vs. a self-selected setting. Structure-based organizing includes the workplace, houses of worship, neighborhoods, and precincts (constituencies bounded and measurable). Self-selected organizing includes groups like Black Lives Matter, Democratic Socialists of America, and Occupy Wall Street (constituencies who already self-identify and are bound by no measurable structure).
