Book Signing: “From Thought to Action: Developing a Social Justice Orientation” @theTWIG
March 28 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Buy a book and meet Amy Aldridge Sanford, the author of “From Thought to Action: Developing a Social Justice Orientation,” during the Pearl Farmer’s Market in San Antonio.
The text examines the history of liberal activism in the United States, various types of activism, significant social movements, the art of dialoguing through disagreement, the importance of leadership, and the risks and rewards associated with activism. Readers learn about the challenges and successes of activists past and present, and are encouraged to recognize the struggles and achievements that define their own journeys. An extensive list of causes is provided, along with strategies for getting involved, empowering readers to identify causes that are important to them and to take action.
A powerful and innovative resource for those inspired to make a difference, From Thought to Action is ideal for freshman seminars, service learning and community engagement programs, and a variety of courses within the social and behavioral sciences, including capstone experiences.
