  John McCarthy and I recently completed a report from our national 
study of low-income community organizing across the U.S. As one of the 
leading scholars of community organizing today, I thought you might be 
interested in this study. We tracked the diverse organizations that were 
funded by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development in the early 1990s 
(1991-3) and surveyed those who survived to 2008-9. As you will see from 
the report, our survey included a considerable amount of detail about 
community-based organizations' structures, processes, funding sources, 
issue mobilization efforts, and more. The report is available here: 

We hope that you find the report useful in your research and thinking on 
efforts to mobilize low- and moderate-income constituencies. Of course, 
we welcome any thoughts you have on the project.

Best regards, Ed
