Social identity theory (SIT) views predictors of participation in collective action as being based on the way we identify our social selves. The sociocultural context of the individual will determine how they identify with social groups and, consequently, how they might be engaged in collective action.

    Collective Action for Social Change: An Introduction to Community Organizing by Aaron Schutz and Marie G. Sandy is a solid read for any community based activist (Here’s a PDF if you can’t afford a hard copy). Those new to organizing will appreciate the foundation, history, and theory within this book, while seasoned activists will find new frames to asses and improve their community. There is also a clue to the same line of reasoning in one of the folk pillars of collective action theory, which is the division between socially central vanguards, and following masses. The division between the vanguard and the population, has been key to theories advancing a more heterogeneous outlook of collective action among the crowds.
