ACORN History: a 3-Part Interview with ACORN Founder Wade Rathke
From The Organizer, a documentary about the history of ACORN:
June 18th, 1970 marks the informal date of ACORN’s birth. It was on that date that Wade Rathke drove into Little Rock on a mission to create a new organization that would attempt to organize a multi-racial ‘majority constituency’ of low and moderate-income Americans into a single umbrella organization. Over the coming decades ACORN would grow into the biggest and most effective community organization in the United States.
