Planting little Acorns

Posted By on Sat, Mar 20, 2010 at 5:34 AM

ACORN, the grassroots community action group founded in Little Rock, is on the verge of bankruptcy thanks to its own internal problems and the recent hit by right-wing political activists, grotesquely misrepresented in media accounts.

The good news is that some individual chapters are reforming and hope to again stake out a role as a voice for the voiceless -- the very thing that drew right-wing ire for so many years. Work is underway in Arkansas, for example. I hope to be able to report more news on that front before too long.
