I am very pleased to announce a new addition to the COMM-ORG
Papers Collection:

Bringing Evaluation to the Grassroots: Insights Gleaned from Studying 
the Mobilization for Global Justice.


Margo Menconi

As we have recently been discussing the question of how to measure 
community organizing outcomes, this paper is timely.  It also explores 
alternatives to the usual "external helicopter evaluator" model.

You can find the paper at the COMM-ORG "Papers" page, in the 2004

I hope that the paper inspires some discussion.  Authors contribute 
papers to COMM-ORG in the hopes of getting comments, so please 
feel welcomed to contact authors directly or discuss their papers 
through the list.   

Thanks so much to Margo for contributing her work.
