readers discover their unique strengths and use this to develop a
personal strategy. To ensure sustainable involvement, Williams
encourages starting small, working collaboratively, and beginning
locally. Advice on self-care practices, burn-out prevention, and
profiles of activists engaged in a range of activities and causes (from
voter registration to craftivism, literacy programs, community gardens,
and more), provide readers with the inspiration and
practical know-how needed to engage in small, doable actions that make a
lasting impact. (35)
