About The Book
A walk-the-walk, talk-the-talk, hands-on, say-it-loud handbook for activist kids who want to change the world!
Inspired by Abbie Hoffman’s radical classic, Steal This Book, author Alexandra Styron’s stirring call for resistance and citizen activism will be clearly heard by young people who don’t accept it is what it is, 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.
Styron’s irreverent and informative primer on how to make a difference is organized into three sections: The Why, The What, and The How. The book opens with a personal essay and a historic look at civil disobedience and teenage activism in America. That’s followed by a deep dive into several key issues: climate change, racial justice, women’s rights, LGBTQIA rights, immigration, religious understanding, and intersectionality. Each chapter is introduced by an original full page comic and includes a summary of key questions, interviews with movers and shakers — from celebrities to youth activists — and spotlights on progressive organizations. The book’s final section is packed with how-to advice on ways to engage, from group activities such as organizing, marching, rallying, and petitioning to individual actions like voting with your wallet, volunteering, talking with relatives with different viewpoints, and using social activism to get out a progressive message.
This is a perfect book for older middle-schoolers and teens who care about the planet, the people with whom they share it, and the future for us all.
