There's a good interview with Ernie Cortes in the second Bill Moyers
interview collection (I don't have it with me, so I can't give you the
exact name.)

Hey Joe Szakos,

There's a book which is probably not exactly what you are looking 
for, but which may help:  It's been a little while since I've looked at
this, but as memory serves, it is a compilation of interviews with 
who started organizations, some community-based, others issue-
based like
D.A.R.E.  Here's the reference: Berkowitz, Bill. 1987. Local Heroes. 
Lexington, MA: Lexington Books.

Good luck!
Sarah Diehl

There is a really wonderful magazine called Changemakers 
(http://www.changemakers.net/) that I highly recommend.  These 
are examples from around the world.  Really great stuff! Margo
