  •  I agree. I personally believe the most effective (5+ / 0-)

    approach is to have techo wizzes AND organizers that do education, outreach and organizing working together on the same issue. It's like building with two hands; much better and most effective.

    When I went to TX to help a teensie group in a very poor rural community fight a huge problem which was blessed by both the corporate and government world, the attorneys that agreed to work on the issue with them, in Austin, said almost nothing before telling me, "you can't stop this".

    Well, we did stop it. And we did it by organizing small groups together into a coalition and then reached out to/organized in communities all through TX who then reached out to their political reps.

    I think it's the most effective way to fight something--or FOR something--because they can't label you as unscientific (you have your wizzes) and there is a united base of power all asking for (or fighting against) the same thing.
