Social movements have few resources, and nearly no cash, yet many thrive and often succeed in achieving their goals. How do they mobilize resources to achieve their objectives? What sort of strategies do they use to generate material resources needed in their campaigns?

Scott DuPree and I talked to three social movements in Northwest Mexico defending their communities and livelihoods from big projects. We have published a blog on the International Center for Nonviolent Conflict web site about how social movements mobilize resources.

We also did a webinar to talk about this work. Tune in an hear the discussion.
