When We Fight, We Win

by Greg Jobin-Leeds and AgitArte - £12.99  The New Press (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781620970935 | ISBN 10: 1620970937

Real stories of hard-fought battles for social change, with clear lessons and tips for activists to build powerful movements.

"At the cliff edge of history is as good a place as any to mine insights that can benefit all those brave enough to try making the kinds of changes that have been deemed impossible."
(Rinku Sen)
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.
 
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 — including Patrisse Cullors-Brignac, Bill McKibben, Clayton Thomas-Muller, Karen Lewis, Favianna Rodriguez, Rea Carey, and Gaby Pacheco, among others—with narrative recountings of strategies and campaigns alongside full-color photos. It includes a foreword by Rinku Sen and an afterword by Antonia Darder.
 
When We Fight, We Win! will give a whole generation of readers the chance to celebrate and benefit from a remarkable decade of activism — a decade that shows just how ripe these times are for social transformation.
