Power Concedes Nothing: How Grassroots Organizing Wins Elections
The November 2020 US election was arguably the most consequential since the 1860 election of Abraham Lincoln—and grassroots leaders and organizers played crucial roles in the contention for the presidency and control of both houses of Congress.

Power Concedes Nothing, a new collection edited by Linda Burhma, Max Elbaum, and Maria Poblet, tells the stories behind a victory that won both the White House and the Senate and powered progressive candidates to new levels of influence. It describes the on-the-ground efforts that mobilized a record-breaking turnout by registering new voters and motivating an electorate both old and new. In doing so it charts a viable path to victory for the vital contests upcoming in 2022 and 2024.

Massachusetts progressives engage in grassroots electoral politics in a variety of campaigns. In this program, contributors to Power Concedes Nothing will present national lessons from the 2020 election cycle.  They will be questioned by several Massachusetts progressive organizers.
