How a new generation of activists is changing the world That age-old quest for meaning-Who am I? What is my calling? How can I make the world better?-is about to get a twenty-first-century makeover by one of the countryrs"s most widely read young writers on social change. Courtney E. Martin pursues the gritty truth about the complicated and challenging process of social change in contemporary America. InDo It Anyway,Martin explores the lives and motivations of eight activists-not superhuman heroes, but ordinary young people searching for their own way to make a difference. Among others, we meet Raul Diaz, a prison re-entry social worker at Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles; Nia Robinson, an African American climate-change activist in Washington, D.C.; Maricela Guzman of California, a former soldier fighting to end violence against women in the military; and Rosario Dawson, an actor struggling to use her celebrity for social change while staying authentic in her activism. In direct opposition to an older generationrs"s cry that young people are apathetic and disengaged,Do It Anywayintroduces a new generation of activists drawn to the kind of work that keeps you up at night because you believe in it so deeply.
