Sara Catterall, Shelf Awareness

In When We Fight, We Win!, activists and anyone new to the social movements of the early 21st century will find first-person insights and a primer on the history of these movements, from the 1960s to 2015…organizers, artists and musicians tell stories of failure and success, what worked and what didn’t, what keeps them going and how anyone can get involved. Their strong awareness of the links between their various causes illuminates a principle Jobin-Leeds calls ‘transformative organizing’.…The text is clear and to the point, infused with the passionate and practical voices of many creative effective individuals working toward common goals. ‘We will fail. We will stumble. We will doubt and we will hesitate. Don’t give up.’
