City Journal's Attack On ACORN
When a community group successfully organizes the poor and working class around issues like a living wage and immigrant rights, its bound to catch the attention of the Right. Thats exactly what ACORN has done, inspiring a hand-wringing tirade by Sol Stern in City Journal, the mouthpiece of the conservative Manhattan Institute. In the current issue of Shelterforce, John Atlas and Peter Dreier review why ACORN succeeds where other community organizations have failed and why it has conservatives up in arms.
