Title:
Steal this country : a handbook for resistance, persistence, and fixing almost anything
Summary:
"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.
