Social Work v. Organizing

text of a poster I recently saw on the office wall of a union organizer:

If you give me a fish
you have fed me for a day

If you teach me to fish
then you have fed me until the river is contaminated
or the shoreline seized for development

But if you teach me to organize
then whatever the challenge
I can join together with my peers
and we will fashion our own solution
