dc.description.abstract This research is a case study of Hoosier Action, a grassroots organization in southern Indiana, seeking political change by building power within and alongside marginalized communities. I propose that relational approaches to power building can support diverse coalitions and catalyze collective action without reifying racialized identities, subverting white supremacist patterns and behaviors. Placed within a context of increased precarity, Hoosier Action is building an effective vehicle for southern Hoosiers to engage politically around their collective values and self-interests. This is transformative work, inviting members into self-reflective practice and identity-shaping activism dependent on diverse and varied experiences with power. This is a case study built from participatory observation, semi-structured interviews, and a generic inductive qualitative model of analysis. en_US
