"There is a critical difference
in the focus of the welfare
rights movement today," says
Tim Sampson, administrative
director of the National Welfare
Rights Organization (NWRO).
Sampson, Dr. Wayne Vasey,
past president of the National
Conference on Social Welfare
and professor in the School of
Social Work, and Tim Keenan,
Democratic candidate for Con-
gress in the third district spoke
at a Welfare Forum held last
night in the Rackham Assembly

and the organizer builds power,"
Sampson said. -

that the changes will be the
right kind. They want to be at
the negotiating table determin-
ing those changes."
Sampson added, "It is diffi-
cult to get people together to
raise hell anyway. Agitating
riots is not as easy as most peo-
ple think.
"Vou don't organize people to
destroy something in the ab-
stract," S a m p s o n continued.
"Welfare recipients don't see this
kind of destruction as very use-
ful. They are interested in what
they are going to get."
Sampson said the popular
notion of a dichotomy between
destruction and reform is a false
one. "We're very clear about the

welfare system work the way it
is supposed to, that might de-
stroy it.
Sampson said that change in
the welfare system definitely
has to come from outside yhe
system. "In the past, efforts to
change it from within have
been paternal," he said. He sum-

working to change the welfare
system from within, "We will
