Komen ran into the power of citizen-activism, for one thing. Did the organization’s leadership do it permanent damage? Quite possibly — the Komen brand has taken a massive hit. Below are some good articles that look at what Komen did, what it could have done, and the public reaction that changed its mind.

LOTS of mistakes to learn from here…so let’s not repeat ‘em.
