Summary:

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.
