If you care about social change but hate feel-good platitudes, Do It Anyway is the book for you.

If you want to make the world a better place

You need to read this book. A microcosmic acknowledgement and celebration of the complexities of our world, and the everyday people doing things everyday to make it better. It's truly an honour, humbling, to be able to learn from such people like this, seeing into their lives and struggle. For activists everywhere but especially in the global north.
