Power of the People: How to Mobilize a Movement

Lecture Series

Monday, May 22, 2017

5:15 pm- 6:30 pm

Rockefeller Lounge

Join International House and the IOP as we welcome Micah White to campus. Mr. White is the co-creator of Occupy Wall Street and author of the book The End of Protest: A New Playbook for Revolution. He will explore best practices on how to organize a movement, if protests are the most effective way to enact change, and how electoral politics factor in a successful organization. The discussion will lead to one central question-What is the future of activism?

Watch Micah White discuss why he believes, "contemporary activism” — marches and mouse clicks — must be abandoned in favor of organizing around winning elections or winning wars.
