Summary
  • Essays, profiles, and interviews about issues in social and political action, including climate change, immigration, gender and sexual orientation, racism, women's rights, religious freedom, and intersectionality. Also includes practical information about tools for effecting change
  • "Walk the walk, talk the talk-- change the world! Are you the type of person who doesn't accept "it is what it is"? Are you wondering what you can do to make the world a better, fairer place for everybody? Do you suspect the future is now? Resisting, persisting, and insisting upon being an activist citizen is the American way. From the Boston Tea Party to Black Lives Matter, we have a strong history of fighting for equality, opportunity, and self-determination. The struggle is more important than ever and the stakes are high when it comes to key issues like: climate change, immigration, LGBTQIA rights, racial justice, religious understanding, and women's rights. [This book] offers essays, profiles, and interviews about what needs fixing in this world--and the practical information about activism that will help you do it. The more you understand, the more you'll be ready to take a stand. Show up and be counted!"--Dust jacket
  • Styron's stirring call for resistance and citizen activism will be clearly heard by young people who want to make sure everybody gets an equal piece of the American pie, and who know that the future of the planet is now. She dives into several key issues: climate change, racial justice, women's rights, LGBTQIA rights, immigration, religious understanding, and intersectionality. Each chapter includes a summary of key questions, interviews with movers and shakers, and spotlights on progressive organizations. The book's final section is packed with how-to advice on ways to engage, from organizing, marching, rallying, and petitioning to individual actions like voting with your wallet, and using social activism to get out a progressive message. -- adapted from amazon.com info
