- For Beginners
In her bold, inspiring guidebook, youth activist Jamie Margolin provides practical advice on how to be an agent of change. She explains the difficulties of being heard, the importance of knowing how to frame an issue to get results,the need to keep your ego out of the way and the value of – in the late Rep. John Lewis’s words – getting into “good trouble.” If you decide to advocate for a cause, Margolin can help you make it happen. Greta Thunberg’s foreword adds to her argument for young people to step forward.
