When We Fight, We Win! Twenty-First-Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World
Join Charis and SONG (Southerners On New Ground) as we celebrate the release of When We Fight, We Win featuring stories of radical 21st century activists including SONG's own co-director, Paulina Helm-Hernandez! Pick up your copy of this important book and learn about how the editors worked to compile movement history in real time. 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 change movements. When We Fight, We Win weaves together interviews with today's most successful activists and artists from across the country and beyond. Same-sex marriage, #BlackLivesMatter, the DREAM Act, the People's Climate March, End the New Jim Crow, Occupy Wall Street, the fight for a $15 minimum wage these are just a few of the remarkable movements that have blossomed in the past decade, a most fertile and productive era of activism. Now, in a visually rich and deeply inspiring book, the leaders and activists of these and other movements distill their wisdom, sharing lessons of what makes and what hinders transformative social change.
