Growing Up Activists
May 25, 2021
About the Panelists:
Sylvia Olsen and Cate May Burton are the authors of Growing Up Elizabeth May: The Making of an Activist, which reveals how Elizabeth May’s activism led her to politics, first as leader of the Green Party of Canada and later as a Member of Parliament. Filled with environmental facts, profiles of young activists and tips for making change in your own community, this book is part biography and part blueprint for activists in the making.
Elizabeth McLeod and Frieda Wishinsky are the authors of How to Become an Accidental Activist, which profiles almost 100 activists from around the world, including change-makers like Greta Thunberg, Pete Seeger and Lilly Singh. This book shows us how ordinary people have persevered throughout history to do extraordinary things to help themselves and others.
