Praise for The World We Need:
"[An] illuminating anthology. . . . Lim crisscrosses the country and selects her profile subjects wisely, resulting in an invigorating survey that breaks down stereotypes about tree-hugging coastal elites and highlights just how much change can be achieved at the local level. Progressive policy makers and environmental activists should take note."
"This book is a testament to the idea that choosing people over profits is environmental justice."
--Catherine Coleman Flowers, author of Waste: One Woman's Fight Against America's Dirty Secret and a 2020 MacArthur "genius" fellow
"This is a truly important book, piecing together the story of what is, cumulatively, a massive uprising for environmental justice. I've gotten to know and work with many of these activists, and everyone should get a charge of optimism from their stories, as well as a sense of the daunting odds they face down so skillfully. We use the word 'heroes' a little loosely sometimes, but these people surely are!"
--Bill McKibben, author of Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?
