              Winning the Green New Deal: Why We Must, How We Can (Audio CD / Audio)

              An urgent and definitive collection of essays from leaders and experts championing the Green New Deal--and a detailed playbook for how we can win it--including contributions by leading activists and progressive writers like Varshini Prakash, Rhiana Gunn-Wright, Bill McKibben, Rev... William Barber II, and more. In October 2018, scientists warned that we have less than 12 years left to transform our economy away from fossil fuels, or face catastrophic climate change. At that moment, there was no plan in the US to decarbonize our economy that fast. Less than two years later, every major Democratic presidential candidate has embraced the vision of the Green New Deal--a rapid, vast transformation of our economy to avert climate catastrophe while securing economic and racial justice for all. What happened? A new generation of leaders confronted the political establishment in Washington DC with a simple message: the climate crisis is here, and the Green New Deal is our last, best hope for a livable future. Now comes the hard part: turning that vision into the law of the land. In Winning a Green New Deal, leading youth activists, journalists, and policymakers explain why we need a transformative agenda to avert climate catastrophe, and how our movement can organize to win. Featuring essays by Varshini Prakash, cofounder of Sunrise Movement; Rhiana Gunn-Wright, Green New Deal policy architect; Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist; Bill McKibben, internationally renowned environmentalist; Mary Kay Henry, the President of the Service Employees International Union, and others we'll learn why the climate crisis cannot be solved unless we also confront inequality and racism, how movements can redefine what's politically possible and overcome the opposition of fossil fuel billionaires, and how a Green New Deal will build a just and thriving economy for all of us. For anyone looking to understand the movement for a Green New Deal, and join the fight for a livable future, th

After learning a long-buried family secret, and enduring a severe trauma, Sunil and Amy try to sustain their love as they wrestle with the weight of difference. With utmost respect for an endless mosaic of cultural divisions, Acker brings a stunning empathy to the limits that prevent us from truly understanding the people we are closest to.

              The Marginalized Majority Lib/E: Claiming Our Power in a Post-Truth America (Audio CD / Audio)

              Ever since the 2016 election, pundits have been saying our country has never been more divided-that if progressives want to reclaim power, we need to be pragmatic, reach across the aisle, and look past identity politics. But what if we're getting the story all wrong? In The Margi...nalized Majority, Onnesha Roychoudhuri makes the galvanizing case that our voices are already the majority-and that our plurality of identities is not only our greatest strength, but is also at the indisputable core of successful progressive change throughout history. From the civil rights movement to the Women's March, Saturday Night Live to the mainstream media, Roychoudhuri holds the myths about our disenfranchisement up to the light, illuminating narratives from history that reveal we have far more power than we're often led to believe. With both clear-eyed hope and electrifying power, she examines our ideas about what's possible, and what's necessary-opening up space for action, new realities, and, ultimately, survival. Now, Roychoudhuri urges us, is the time to fight like the majority we already are.

              A stunning literary debut of two young women on opposing sides of the devastating Sri Lankan Civil WarBefore violence tore apart the tapestry of Sri Lanka and turned its pristine beaches red, there were two families. Yasodhara tells the story of her own Sinhala family, rich in lo...ve, with everything they could ask for. As a child in idyllic Colombo, Yasodhara and her siblings lives are shaped by social hierarchies, their parents ambitions, teenage love, and, subtly, the differences between Tamil and Sinhala people; but the peace is shattered by the tragedies of war. Yasodhara s family escapes to Los Angeles. But Yasodhara s life has already become intertwined with a young Tamil girl s.Saraswathie is living in the active war zone of Sri Lanka and hopes to become a teacher. But her dreams for the future are abruptly stamped out when she is arrested by a group of Sinhala soldiers and pulled into the very heart of the conflict that she has tried so hard to avoid a conflict that, eventually, will connect her and Yasodhara in unexpected ways.In the tradition of Michael Ondatje s Anil s Ghost and Arundhati Roy s The God of Small Things, Island of a Thousand Mirrors is an emotionally resonant saga of cultural heritage, heartbreaking conflict, and deep family bonds. Narrated in two unforgettably authentic voices and spanning the entirety of the decades-long civil war, it offers an unparalleled portrait of a beautiful land during its most difficult moment by a spellbinding new literary talent who promises tremendous things to come.
