“This book is the story of an organizer who comes apart and is put back together many, many times…the lessons I’ve learned along the way, the things I’m still learning, and what my learning may contribute in a time of profound catastrophe and limitless possibility.” —Alicia Garza
Organizer and Black Lives Matter co-creator Alicia Garza celebrates the launch of her honest and original new book. In The Purpose of Power: How We Come Together When We Fall Apart, she offers an essential guide to building the type of movements that can address the challenges of our time. Diverging from both the “rules for radicals” that animated earlier generations of activists and the patriarchal model of the American Civil Rights Movement, Garza reflects on how making room amongst the woke for those who are still waking can inspire more people to join the fight. In telling her own story of bringing people together to create change and the lessons she’s learned over the years, The Purpose of Power poses a new paradigm for a new generation of changemakers, from the mind and heart behind one of the most important movements of our time.
