Description

Before it’s infamous demise, ACORN was once the largest community organization in the U.S. Following the founder, Wade Rathke, in the establishment and growth of ACORN, The Organizer illustrates the transformation of the organization into a national political powerhouse for the poor and the external pressures that would lead to its tragic downfall.
