Better than we found it : conversations to help save the world / Frederick Joseph and Porsche Joseph.


Every generation inherits the problems created by the ones before them, but no generation will inherit as many problems--as many crises--as the current generation of young people. From the devastations of climate change to the horrors of gun violence, from rampant transphobia to the widening wealth gap, from the lack of health care to the lack of housing, the challenges facing the next generation can feel insurmountable. But change, even revolution, is possible; you just have to know where to start. Covering sixteen topics and featuring more than two dozen interviews with prominent activists, authors, actors, and politicians, this is the essential resource for those who want to make the world better than we found it. Featuring interviews with: Mehcad Brooks, Keah Brown, Julian Castro, Sonja Cherry-Paul, Chelsea Clinton, Charlotte Clymer, Mari Copeny aka Little Miss Flint, Greg D'Amato, Jesse Katz, Amed Khan, Daniel Alejandro Leon-Davis, Willy and Jo Lorenz, Ben O'Keefe, Brittany Packnett-Cunningham, Anna Paquin, Robert Reich, Brandon T. Snider, Nic Stone, Anton Treuer, Andrea Tulee, David Villalpando, Elizabeth Warren, Shannon Watts, Natalie Weaver, Brandon Wolf.
