APPLICATION OF THE SAUL ALINSKY APPROACH
Introduction
The industrial area foundation abbreviated as IAF is one of the community organizing networks
that were established in the 1940s by the late Saul Alinsky, together with former business man
and the founder of Sun times, Marshall Iii and the Roman Catholic Bishop Bernard Sheil. The
partners in this foundation were the majority of the religious, civic and congregations at the local
community level that were to help in building the organization (Barstow, 2007). The main aim of
the foundation was to strengthen the leadership and taking actions on the community issues that
were identified by the community leaders.
Saul Alinsky, Community Organizing and Rules for Radicals
In his late works, Alinsky wrote an article titled "A pragmatic for the realistic radicals"; his book
about this was also published in the year 1971 shortly after he died. The main goal of writing
this article was to create a guide that could be used in future the community organizers to unite
low-income communities, or those that are known as ‘have not” to allow them to gain social,
economic, political and legal power. The roots of the article and the guidance’s on the
experiences that he had experienced in the community for his lifetime, 1939-1971 and the
lessons and rules were targeted for the current generation of radicals. The article divides that
into 10 different rules that the community organizers are supposed to accomplish for them to be
able to unite the community successfully. This work also targets the issues ion community
organizations that range from communications, education, ethics and the symbolic to the
construction of nonviolence and the political philosophy in the community. The article
summarizes the rule for the radicals as:
