Teaching Solidarity: Education In Grassroots US Social Movements

Teaching Solidarity.

Editor’s Note: Tenaya Lafore was kind enough to allow us to excerpt this section of her doctoral dissertation, the entirety of which will be of interest to anyone interested in the intersection of education and social movement organizing. This particular section stands out as an example of some issues with non-profit led worker co-op development that we have seen and tried to draw attention to. While the issues faced by the Grassroots Empowerment and Leadership program that Lafore recounts below are different than those at play in non-profits doing worker co-op development, the overall dynamics of the hierarchical “non-profit industrial complex” extend beyond any particular movement or campaign.
