“A crucial resource for changemakers.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu,
In the struggle for freedom and justice, organizers and activists have often turned to art, creativity, and humor. Beautiful Rising is the follow-up to the bestselling Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox for Revolution. Beautiful Rising showcases some of the most innovative tactics used in struggles against autocracy and austerity across the Global South.
Join us for a conversation and Meet and Greet about the project and how the toolkit can help us make nonviolent revolution irresistible.
