On the Lived Theology Reading List: Building Power, Changing Lives

Building Power, Changing Lives: The Story of Virginia OrganizingThe Story of Virginia Organizing

Virginia Organizing has been working for twenty years to bring long-term, sustainable change to Virginia through a commitment to social justice. Fellow travelers Ruth Berta and Amanda Leonard Pohl chronicle the organization’s journey.

The Virginia Organizing website describes the organization as:

…a non-partisan statewide grassroots organization dedicated to challenging injustice by empowering people in local communities to address issues that affect the quality of their lives. Virginia Organizing especially encourages the participation of those who have traditionally had little or no voice in our society. By building relationships with individuals and groups throughout the state, Virginia Organizing strives to get them to work together, democratically and non-violently, for change.
