Social Change Comes in Stages

Popular Resistance published a newsletter today. In it, they describe the eight stages of progressive social movements, based on the work of the late activist Bill Moyer (not to be confused with Bill Moyers).

Social change is a long haul. Take heart. Popular Resistance believes we are already in Stage 6!

Real Change Is Closer than You Think

Currently, we are in Stage 6, “Majority Public Support.” The movement seeks to create broad and deep consensus over the issues that have been raised in the “Take-Off.” Our job is to win over the hearts and minds of the American people.
