Bill Moyer (not to be confused with the TV journalist Bill Moyers) developed the MAP (Movement Action Plan) Model of how successful progressive movements evolve. He originated – with Carol Perry – the ‘Creating Peaceful Relationships’ workshop series. Advisor to Rev. Martin Luther King, co-founder of the Movement for a New Society and founder of the Social Movement Empowerment Project (SMEP), Bill – as he was known to his many international students, friends and colleagues – was a lifelong practitioner of non-violent political and social activism. His lectures and workshops, models and ideas continue to empower progressive organizations around the world. He died of cancer in 2002, at the age of 69.In his last public lecture just prior to his death, beloved activist, teacher and social movement analyst Bill Moyer summarized the insights of a lifetime about how social movements grow and succeed, and about his vision of a new culture emerging through the cracks of a declining empire. Bill was a founding Board Member of EON. He continues to be missed, but his analysis remains as relevant now as it was then.
