#213 / Social Arsonists

I got an invitation to a "workshop for social arsonists." It's going to be held from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 9th, in Santa Cruz. Send an email to, if you'd like to attend, or if you want more information.

In the meantime, if you aren't clear on the "social arsonist" concept, consider this observation from Fred Ross, one of the greatest community organizers in history:

"A good organizer is a social arsonist who goes around setting people on fire."

I kind of like that! You can get a whole list of Fred Ross' community organizing maxims from Colorado Jobs With Justice.
