Stand Up!: 75 Young Activists Who Rock the World, And How You Can, Too!
Stand Up! is the generation-defining call to action and collection of stories by 75 of the world’s most dynamic young activists, some of whom started their efforts as early as three years old and many have founded their own nonprofit organizations. Today, through their grassroots movements and international work, they are bringing their own brand of savvy compassion and unstoppable courage to the crossroads of social entrepreneurship and activism. From Africa’s highest mountain peak, the rainforest, tasty school gardens, and classrooms in places like Africa, Pakistan, India, Peru, Colombia, Afghanistan and the U.S. to building fresh water wells in developing nations, fighting discrimination, saving animals, honoring heroic soldiers and so much more, these young men and women are on the frontlines of the global youth movement to change the world for the better.
***In 2014, Stand Up! won a Nautilus Book Award for Young Adult Non-Fiction and was also honored with one of Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards for Young Adult Non-Fiction***
