I stayed up half the night engrossed in this book.
It’s that compelling and well designed. In fact, I’ve been an organizer and activist for 45 years, and I’ve never seen a resource as useful, timely and visually appealing as the just-released Dream of a Nation: Inspiring Ideas for a Better America. We are proud to be one of over 60 collaborators contributing to this 400 page book of essays, over three years in the making
What’s so unique about this is book is that it covers so much ground, so thoroughly. It’s an encyclopedia for activists and educators, targeting some of our most pressing issues: government accountability, poverty, inequality, health care, youth, the media, energy, education, democracy, peace, to name just a few. The essays are written by some of our best visionaries and activist groups, including Frances Moore Lappe, Winona LaDuke, Majora Carter, United for a Fair Economy, The Education Trust, and Free Press. They lay out the shocking problems, but even better - they focus on solutions, solutions that bring us together. We‘ve needed this approach for decades.
It’s also a pleasure to look at - filled with full color photos and powerful, easy-to-understand graphs and charts. I bet you won’t want to put the book down! The book is a project of SEE Innovations, edited by Tyson Miller and designed by Kelly Spitzner.
With the elections coming, we all know the onslaught of disinformation that will work against us. Here in one document are arguments and data that work for us.
