  • SAIC ACTIVISM & SOCIAL CHANGE STUDENT GROUP TYPES OF SOCIAL CHANGE
  • INTRODUCTION TO SOCIAL CHANGE ORGANIZING “ The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims have been born of struggle…Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning… Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will… Find out what the people will submit to, and you have found the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” - Frederick Douglass, Letter to an abolitionist associate, 1849
