The North Oconee River Project is hosting a Community Rights Movement workshop in Athens next week. It’s aimed at helping people develop and pass locally enforceable laws.
Activist Paul Cienfuegos has spent the past two decades doing grassroots organizing and holding Community Rights workshops. Cienfuegos says it’s important that communities establish their right to local self-government and their right to protect their health, safety and welfare. Something he says is more difficult than many realize.
