Better Than We Found It: Conversations to Help Save the World
authors: Frederick Joseph; 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. In Better Than We Found It, best-selling author Frederick Joseph and debut author Porsche Joseph make the case for addressing some of the biggest issues of our day. 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:
Mari Copeny, aka Little Miss Flint
Daniel Alejandro Leon-Davis
Willy and Jo Lorenz
Brittany Packnett Cunningham
Brandon T. Snider
