  •  Same problem we have here in the Delta. (6+ / 0-)

    According to the government and the big environmental groups, the people who live here know nothing.  And ironically in our case, we get the blame for the destruction caused by the State and Federal Water projects that have destroyed the Delta.

    •  I am sorry that happened or remains happening. I (3+ / 0-)

      worked for an org that insisted on local leadership on projects and I still believe that to be the BEST and most effective and inclusive means of dealing with issues. They didn't start that way, btw, but learned along the way from their mistakes.

      The org had one of the most effective and brilliant organizers on toxics EVER. Legally trained, but not practicing law, he was THE BEST organizer I have ever personally seen. And believe me, he was tough as nails and challenging as could be. He was highly respected by the communities he worked with because he put them in the leadership position and helped them with campaigns and funding to make them successful. It's really bottom up horizontal organizing and not something we see a lot in other groups. Top-down organizing, which is what I see in SC and many other groups develops the agenda then moves forward v. developing the agenda WITH local peoples.

      Big difference.
