Each of us faces a moment of truth - at a time of crisis, do we stand up and speak out or retreat into our private lives? This audiobook is for those frustrated by what they see happening in the world but are not sure what they can do about it.
Veteran organizer Gordon Whitman shows that we have the power we need to create a racially and economically just society. But it won't happen if we stay on the sidelines sharing social media posts and signing online petitions. We win only if we're willing to join other people in the kind of face-to-face organizing that has powered every successful social movement in history.
Whitman describes five types of conversations that enable people to build organizations that can solve local problems and confront the greatest challenges facing our country - from gun violence to climate change. The audiobook is a road map for standing up to the bullies who've hijacked our democracy and divided us against each other.
