At a time of crisis, do we stand up and speak out or retreat into our private lives? Veteran organizer Gordon Whitman’s book, Stand Up!: How to Get Involved, Speak Out, and Win in a World on Fire (Berrett-Koehler), was written for those frustrated by what they see happening in the world but not sure what they can do about it. Gordon Whitman is deputy director of Faith in Action (formerly PICO National Network), with a membership of 3,000 faith institutions and 2.5 million people. As a community organizer, legal services lawyer, and strategist, he helps working families build strong and effective multiracial community organizations.
"Stand Up! is just the kind of book we need right now. This is a guide for working people who want to make a difference."–Mary Kay Henry, International President, Service Employees International Union.
