Developed in response to the question “I love ABCD (Asset Based Community Development);
what do I do Monday Morning?”--and based on Mike Green & Henry Moore’s highly regarded
work as ABCD organizers, consultants and trainers–-these materials support a practical
approach to creating community collaborations that work. Enriching each other, the book and
the DVD provide clear exposition of ABCD organizing principles and best practices, examples of
ABCD organizing in action, learning exercises, worksheets, and reflections from experienced
practitioners of ABCD organizing.
Main topics include: ABCD Principles & Practice • Discovering
What People Care About • Mobilizing A Community’s Assets • People & Programs: We Need
Both • Leading By Stepping Back: The Role Of Governments & Agencies • Inclusion: There Is No
One We Do Not Need • John McKnight’s Reflections On ABCD organizing.
