Community organizers are angry–and they should be. They’ve launched a blog talking about the vital work they do for ordinary, every day people. Despite comments like Guiliani’s statement that Obama, as a community organizer, has never actually “led people in crisis,” community organizers sacrifice a great deal of their time, financial well-being, and endure tremendous amounts of emotional strain. They lead people that do not believe they have any power or influence and empower them to take control of their lives. They organize people that have very little in common and instill them with the passion they need to take on big government and big companies despite being ill or tackling tremendous financial and emotional obligations at home. Take a look at the web site of the Community Organizers of America. Keep at it, COA. We need you.
