517n7qpmwsl_sl500_aa240_.jpgIn Standing Up To The Madness, journalists Amy and David Goodman chronicle the struggles and actions taken by everyday Americans to make their communities, their nation and their world a better place. One person, one action, one issue at a time.

The folks spotlighted in this book have made a difference for themselves and for all of us by simply refusing to accept the status quo or remain silent about abuses. And by doing the work necessary to move things in a better direction.

If you have ever been disgusted or pissed off or ashamed of something going on, this book will inspire you to become the change you wish to see.

Please join us on Tuesday, June 24th at 3:00 pm ET/noon PT for a live chat regarding , with Amy Goodman, acclaimed journalist and host of Democracy Now!, and her brother David Goodman, award-winning independent journalist and contributor to Mother Jones.  It promises to be a lively discussion about activism in America — what is being done, and what we can all do to take it even further. Hope you can join us!
