So pick a set of rules / proposed mass action, that will appeal to the
target audience. Back then it was "rich" (trading/ land owning) white
males, now it's what? Perhaps middle class mom and dad dual income
family (making about the same as a single working "white male" back in
the '60s - that's the comparison in Australia anyway) ?

Pick a motivation (hip pocket/ money), map out a set of rhetoric/
propaganda that will have best chance of appealing to your target
"activists", build your core (this may be the hardest part) then it
should grow naturally, since you pitched the right audience with the
right message.

Don't bemoan "the racist elitist" past - they were successful in
opposing the English Crown's attempt to bring them back under control -
just learn from what worked already.
