CultureShift Book Club: This Is An Uprising
Please RSVP here: bit.ly/ffacshiftjuly
Come hang out at our next CultureShift Book Club meeting! Meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. PT. We'll be discussing a variety of books and long-form articles that explore speciesism, racism, sexism, materialism, and their interconnections. Everyone is welcome.
This month we are reading "This Is an Uprising: How Nonviolent Revolt Is Shaping the Twenty-First Century" by Mark Engler and Paul Engler.
Strategic nonviolent action has reasserted itself as a potent force in shaping public debate and forcing political change. This Is an Uprising traces the evolution of civil resistance. The Englers show how people with few resources and little influence in conventional politics can nevertheless engineer momentous upheavals.
