The New American Populists and the Progressive Prescription for America
That's the name of the new book I'm writing, to honor all the wonderful progressive heroes working to bring about lasting, positive, progressive changes for America, and exactly what we can learn from their activism.
Here's the text from the inside of the book jacket:
In the New American Populists, first time author Jeff Richardson delivers a powerful argument for how We, the People, can once again have a proud and prosperous country that serves the need of all its citizens. His approach is unique - he builds each chapter around one of his personal heroes, giving a short biography followed by interviews and lessons that he's learned from each individual that express an important element in the Progressive Movement for lasting social change in this country.
Every man, woman, or child in America who's ever asked the question "What can I do about all this?" will surely learn something valuable from reading this book. Organizers, activists, history professors and politicians - all should have this book on their bookshelf, or better yet, sitting open on their bedside table.
Each of the individuals profiled in this book will inspire you to get involved and to stay motivated, and the ideas they have on how to improve this country will surely motivate you to want to go out and make them a reality.
In the words of the immortal Thom Hartmann, one of many progressive individuals profiled in the book, "Democracy begins with you. Tag, you're it!"
