L.A. Kauffman

L.A. Kauffman has spent more than thirty years immersed in grassroots movements, as a participant, organizer, journalist, and observer. Kauffman was a key strategist for a series of successful campaigns that saved community gardens and public libraries in New York City from development, and she coordinated grassroots mobilizing for the huge antiwar marches of 2003-2004. Her writings on organizing and movement history have appeared in The Guardian, The Nation, n+1, and many other outlets. She is the author of Direct Action: Protest and the Reinvention of American Radicalism and is involved in a variety of current resistance projects.
