Loy­al to the Sky: Notes from an Activist

  • From the Publisher
February 3, 2020

Activist and jour­nal­ist Marisa Han­dler takes us on a fas­ci­nat­ing jour­ney — from her child­hood home in apartheid South Africa to Israel, India, Nepal, Ecuador, Peru, and all over the Unit­ed States — to offer a rare and reveal­ing glimpse inside the glob­al jus­tice move­ment. She exam­ines the movement’s strengths and con­tra­dic­tions, demys­ti­fies its con­fronta­tion­al tac­tics, and explains why it has become such a pow­er­ful force for change. With vivid details of the many char­ac­ters and events that have influ­enced her, this grip­ping com­ing-of-age sto­ry shows how, in a glob­al­ized soci­ety, we each have with­in us the pow­er to change the world.
