The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation invites you to a book talk of Prisms of the People: Power & Organizing in Twenty-First-Century America with co-authors Elizabeth McKenna and Michelle Oyakawa. Joined by Alejandra Gomez and Tomás Robles of Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), the panel will draw upon their collective research and experience to discuss the characteristics of winning and losing campaigns, sharing how movements build power for change as well as where they often go wrong. Tova Wang, Democracy Fellow at the Ash Center, will moderate.

Prisms of the People: Power & Organizing in Twenty-First-Century America —a new book by Hahrie Han, Elizabeth McKenna, and Michelle Oyakawa—is published by The University of Chicago Press.
