Stand Up! Speak Up! is a delightful book by local author Andrew Joyner that demonstrates the ways everyone can make a difference, one step at a time. I loved the reminder that sometimes we can feel tired and deflated when we don’t see immediate change, but that it’s okay to regroup and try again later.
A beautiful book for the small climate activists in the family. Kasey
