[ed:  Andy follows on Jeff's response.]

From: "Andrew Mott" <andymott at communitylearningproject.org>

Jeff Pinzano's recent note mentioned my recent paper on Moving to 
Scale in Improving America's Housing, which explores how organizing 
and advocacy have enabled community organizing groups, coalitions 
and others to expand greatly their impact on housing conditions.  It also
looks at how some organizing groups have taken on development
responsibilities in ways which have not undercut their ability to organize
people and take on controversial issues.   

If you'd like a copy of the report, please send a check for $10 made out
to Andrew Mott at the address below.
