I am very pleased to announce another paper in the COMM-ORG 2006 paper series:

Four Narratives of Anti-Poverty Community Mobilization: Housing Works, FIERCE, Human Rights Watch, and the More Gardens Coalition

by Benjamin Shepard

This is a collection of essays covering housing, community gardens, free spaces, and social justice issues in New York City. As such it is an interesting look at how the issues interweave and intersect in one place, with an emphasis on the words of the participants themselves.

You can find the paper at the COMM-ORG “Papers” page, in the 2006 section:

I hope that the paper inspires some discussion. Authors contribute papers to COMM-ORG in the hopes of getting comments, so please feel welcomed to contact Benjamin directly, or discuss his paper through the list.

Thanks so much to Benjamin for contributing this work.
