April 11th-National Heroes Day

Teenage girl activists  are the heroes we highlight today.  Their stories, experiences, and perspectives show the innovative and effective organizing that is happening across many nations.  We both love this new book, with its riveting interviews and observations of the girls’ political community work.  Young adults will especially appreciate the ways young women are teaching older adults new political strategies to work for social justice.
