"Global Grassroots" and Remittance Campaign

A collection of essays telling the story of ACORN's organizing efforts around the world, "Global Grassroots" is edited by ACORN co-founder Wade Rathke. Campaigns on issues such as payday lending and living wages offer stories relevant to organizing in Canada.

Proceeds from the book will be used in a campaign to pressure Western Union to reduce rates on the money transfers used by many Canadians to remit a portion of their earnings to their families abroad.
