What happens when you ask one hundred and twenty animal activists their advice about strategy, tactics, and making meaningful change for animals? The answer is Mark Hawthorne’s new book Striking at the Roots: A Practical Guide to Animal Activism. Highly readable, Hawthorne’s text demystifies advocacy, showing the myriad entry points where people can get effectively involved, from the small-scale to elaborate, from the casual to highly organized. Showcasing the voices of activists, the personable text pulses with infectious enthusiasm. Tune in to hear Hawthorne talk about what surprised him, who inspires him, and where the movement stumbles (and thrives!).
