Organize Section

In this section the focus is on the call to "organize", to create and support action groups and networks of citizens at both the community and global levels to address critical issues and influence the behavior of both business and government. This includes:
  • Community Organizing on the local level which can be an important outreach and mission strategy for local congregations.
  • Political Organizing from local to world levels both through partisan politics and through advocacy groups.
  • Union Organizing bringing together workers in various industries to advocate for justice in the ways the fruits and benefits of enterprise are distributed.
  • Issue Organizing on key issues such as world trade, economic justice, environmental preservation, etc.
If you are involved in any form of organizing please tell us something about it. We would like to assist in any way we can.
    Online Resources

  • Labor Notes. A media and organizing project that has been the voice of union activists who want to put the movement back in the labor movement since 1979. Through our magazine, website, books, conferences, and workshops, we promote organizing, aggressive strategies to fight concessions, alliances with workers’ centers, and unions that are run by their members.

  • Waging Nonviolence. A source for original news and analysis about struggles for justice and peace around the globe.
  • Left Movement Directory. One of the most complete directories of all sorts of groups oriented to the political "left" maintained by the Brecht Forum.

  • Organizing Upgrade. Organizing Upgrade is an attempt to engage left leaders and innovators in the field of community organizing in a strategic dialogue. We hope that this project can bring the kind of inspiration, vision and strategic clarity we need to strengthen our political impact, both in our immediate fight and in our longer-term efforts to build the social justice movement and to revitalize a movement-rooted left in the United States. We hope that, by encouraging some of the leading innovators and leaders from the sphere of community organizing to put pen to paper and to speak their mind, we can develop unity and clarity about the key demands on left organizers in these times.
Online Networking can be a way to connect with others. Here are some places to do so:
  • DailyKos. Very popular, lots of daily talk on practical politics and strategy from the moderate left, run by Markos Moulitsas and involves peer moderation.
  • Smirking Chimp. Very active, go here to vent, get after Bush, see what's making people mad.
  • MyDD. A political blog by Jerome Armstrong and Chris Bowers who write articles and others comment on them.
  • Eschaton. A personal site of Duncan Black, a 32 year old recovering economist living in Center City Philadelphia. It has been online since April, 2002, and currently gets an average of over 100,000 visits per day.
  • Democratic Underground. One of the premier left-wing websites on the Internet, publishing original content six days a week, and hosting one of the web's most active left-wing discussion boards.
  • MoveOn. Not a discussion board, but you can get on their mailing list.
  • Free Republic. This is a popular discussion site for the righteous right. To read news from the right and read columns by Jerry Falwell, Limbaugh, and Weyrich, go to Newsmax funded by conservative billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife.
  • Portal site to conservative commentators, columnists, and discussion.

The heart of organizing is real conversation in one on one relationships. Cesar Chavez once said, "First you talk to one person, then you talk to another person, then you talk to another person..." So organizing begins where people talk, and talk honestly with one another. Be ready to hear "the pain of the other", be ready to be able to see where the other person is hurting, and try to be real, that is, to identify the real powers that are causing the pain. Then join with others to resist those powers. This is the essence of organizing, one on one relationships, doing what Jesus did, loving the neighbor in the specific circumstances in which you meet him or her, building new communities of peace and justice.

For online organizing, we encourage you to check out the website of Faithful Democracy, a project of the Interfaith Alliance which focuses on key legislative issues.

Another key aspect of organizing is good research. Among the many politically-oriented research organizations today we especially recommend the Center for American Progress. Public Agenda is a good place to start for research on public issues.

Polling Report. Summaries of polling data by the Pew Center.

It is worth noting here that two formal institutional structures dominate public life today: business corporations and government. People of faith work within these structures and the Center for Public Theology wants to be a resource for them and also ask them to help us find the best ways and means to influence these institutions.

And there is a third type of institutional structure also very important at this time in history, sometimes called Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) on the world level or non-profit organizations at the community level. Church organizations fall within this definition which are the focus in the Church section of this website. It is often through such groups that organizing is done and in the various pages of this section we will present organizing opportunities through these groups.
