With a foreword by Elizabeth Martinez, Roots of Justice recaptures some of the nearly forgotten histories of communities of color. These are the stories of people who fought back against exploitation and injustice--and won. From the Zoot Suiters who refused to put up with abuse at the hands of the Navy, to the women who organized the welfare rights movement of the 1970s, Roots of Justice shows how, through organizing, ordinary people have made extraordinary contributions to change society.

Kim Klein is widely regarded as one of the most important figures in the field of grassroots fundraising, both as a writer and a practitioner. In great demand as a speaker and presenter, she has provided training and consultation in all fifty states and twenty-one countries. Klein specializes in training nonprofit organizations working for social justice with budgets of less than $2,000,000 on how to build a broad base of individual donors. She began her fundraising career while studying to be a Methodist minister and working in one of the first domestic violence programs in California, La Casa de las Madres, in San Francisco. Since then, she has been development director, board member, and volunteer for numerous organizations working for social change. Klein founded the Grassroots Fundraising Journal in 1981 and is the author of Fundraising for the Long Haul, Fundraising in Times of Crisis, and Ask and You Shall Receive. She also edited Raise More Money: The Best of the Grassroots Fundraising Journal with her partner, Stephanie Roth. She lives in Berkeley, California.
