“Seeds of Change: The ACORN Story and the Future of Community Organizing,” a Talk With John Atlas




John Atlas is the author of Seeds of Change: The Story of ACORN, America’s Most Controversial Antipoverty Community Organizing Group, hailed by Robert Kuttner as “the definitive book on one of the most effective grass roots organizations of low income Americans.”  For over 35 years, Atlas has been a public interest lawyer, activist, radio talk-show host, and organizer.  A founder and board president of the New Jersey-based National Housing Institute/Shelterforce (NHI), a national think tank that promotes concrete strategies for affordable housing, urban revitalization, and a more robust and engaged civil society, Atlas has sustained a lifelong commitment to improving the lives of those less fortunate.
