nick licataThe PNA Village Program invites you to join Nick Licata as he speaks about his recent book: Becoming a Citizen Activist: Stories, Strategies, and Advice for Changing Our World. Recent waves of social activism like the Occupy movement and Black Lives Matter show that you can fight city hall–or any other powerful entity for that matter. Now comes the playbook for citizen activists wanting to improve the world around them from Nick Licata, admired Seattle city councilmember and one of the city’s most effective leaders of political and social change since the 1960s. In this smart and powerful book, Licata explains how to get organized, congregate power, and master the tactics for change. He is insightful in comparing effective communication with methods that just don’t work. Licata’s observations on the intricacies of power will empower any activist who wants to make a difference in today’s world. For more information about the book visit: becomingacitizenactivist.org
