Rules for Revolutionaries How Big Organizing Can Change Everything
Becky Bond and Zack Exley

A riveting behind-the-scenes look at the “rules” used by the “revolutionaries” who helped harness the volunteer power that fueled Bernie Sanders’ historic, and insurgent, presidential campaign.

Authors Becky Bond and Zack Exley led the Sanders campaign’s efforts to recruit and engage volunteers at an unprecedented level, which was crucial to the Vermont senator capturing 46 percent of pledged delegates toward the Democratic nomination.

Their forthcoming book Rules for Revolutionaries: How Big Organizing Can Change Everything offers the first post-campaign narrative of how a small “distributed organizing” team operating on the fringes of the Sanders campaign was able to identify, recruit, train, and activate hundreds of thousands of volunteers to make over 75 million calls, launch 8 million individually-sent text messages, and to hold more than 100,000 public meetings in an effort to put Bernie Sanders’ insurgent campaign over the top. This is what the authors call ”Big Organizing,” which in the book they have broken down into 22 new “Rules” that overturn the old playbook that has dominated politics for decades.

Rules for Revolutionaries, lays the groundwork for the next phase of organizing to bring about a desperately needed political revolution.

Bond and Exley were inspired to join the campaign by Sanders’ revolutionary message. They were able to mobilize this extraordinary volunteer effort by putting into practice science-based evidence showing that, contrary to conventional wisdom, the big money approach to elections (TV advertising, robocalls, direct mail) is not what moves voters to the polls; what matters is individual volunteers having conversations with voters. This is great news for everyone who is engaged with social change. Indeed, if people organize, they can go up against big money and win.

In conjunction with the book release, Bond and Exley will “barnstorm” the United States, showing organizers and activists how to put into practice the new rules and the ideas in the book.

“The big vision, big goals and big organizing that these revolutionary new rules enable, that is what this book is about,” the authors write in the book. “If we put these new rules into action . . . then we start to win the radical changes necessary to address the pressing issues of our time.”

Fast-paced, provocative and profound, Rules for Revolutionaries will stand as a liberating challenge to the low expectations and small thinking that dominates too many advocacy, non-profit and campaigning organizations — and points the way forward to a future where political revolution is truly possible.
