Power Of Youth: Youth and Community-Led Activism in Canada

By Brigette DePape (Editor)

Power of Youth is a collection of articles by young activists working for change that benefits us all. Dispelling the myth that youth are apathetic, their bold and creative action shows that youth are not only engaged – but also powerful when they take collective action.

The collection has something for everyone: young people who are interested in making change but are unsure how, left baby-boomers and gen-xers who are concerned about the future, seasoned activists, and anyone seeking to build a better world. The book explores the intersecting themes of climate justice, Indigenous sovereignty, education and Indigenous women, anti-poverty and anti-criminalization, anti-war, anti-violence and anti-racism, women and LGBTQ, social media, and system change for economic and democratic justice.
