Description


Real stories of hard-fought battles for social change, told by those on the front lines--with clear lessons and tips for activists on gaining power from the ground up

"As protests and demonstrations sprout across the land, young organizers and activists need to know why and how movements are sustained and how they grow. That resource has arrived." --Mumia Abu-Jamal, author and activist

In this visually rich and deeply inspiring book, the leaders of some of the most successful movements of the past decade--from the legalization of same-sex marriage to the Black Lives Matter movement--distill their wisdom, sharing lessons of what makes transformative social change possible.

Longtime social activist Greg Jobin-Leeds joins forces with AgitArte, a collective of artists and organizers, to capture the stories, philosophy, tactics, and art of today's leading social movements. When We Fight, We Win weaves together interviews with today's most successful activists and artists from across the country and beyond--including Patrisse Cullors, Bill McKibben, Clayton Thomas-Muller, Karen Lewis, Favianna Rodriguez, Rea Carey, and Gaby Pacheco, among others--with narrative recountings of their inspiring strategies and campaigns alongside full-color photos. It includes a foreword by Rinku Sen and an afterword by Antonia Darder.

The recent nationwide explosion of protests has shown the power the people have when we join together with a common goal and compelling message. When We Fight, We Win will give a whole generation of readers the road map to building resilient movements that can achieve real social justice.
