He was first arrested in the civil rights movement and was a trainer for the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer. In 2018 he was arrested campaigning for Power Local Green Jobs. He has given leadership to campaigns on neighborhood, city-wide, state, national, and international levels, including cross-race, cross-class coalitions and the LGBTQ movement. He co-led strategy workshops with César Chavez, and worked with labor unions, Mohawks, high school students, environmentalists, and the Puerto Rican independence movement. He also taught conflict studies at colleges and universities and authored ten books on how to bring about change.
“…If you want to be a nonviolent change-maker, George Lakey has both remarkable stories and remarkable insights--not to mention some remarkable colleagues who add their perspective to this necessary manual.” -- Bill McKibben, co-founder 350.org
