Mike Miller is the founder and Executive Director of ORGANIZE Training Center and a genuine force in the field of community organizing. In a career spanning 50 years, he has worked for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), organizing legend Saul Alinsky, and has played a part in some of the most significant community mobilizations of the late 20th century. He has also published numerous articles on organizing; taught urban politics and organizing at Stanford, University of California, San Francisco State, and elsewhere; and is the author of the book A Community Organizer's Tale.
Join us as Mr. Miller discusses about the strengths of the OWS movement as well as the critical questions it must face if it is to develop a meaningful strategy for the 99%. He will outline what it might mean to occupy the country and create a movement whose depth and breadth would make it an unstoppable force.Sponsored by the Pomona College History Department, the Intercollegiate Department of Chicana/o~Latina/o Studies, and the Draper Center for Community Partnerships.
