Mobilizing weak support for social movements

In trying to make sense out of the media sh*tstorm that descended on me in the wake of being attacked at Planned Parenthood the other day, I'm re-organizing my pro-life files, contacts and databases. One of my contacts is Susan Minter but I can't remember why I scrawled her name on a piece of paper with a note, "Add her to prime pro-life list". So I researched her. In doing so, I found this excellent academic paper: Mobilizing Weak Support for Social Movements

This looks valuable for my pro-life work, so I'm sticking it here so I can always find it. If you are interested in the sociology of creating change through activism, you might want to read it.
