"We're at a moment when so many young people want to join in the fight for the future, but too often they feel powerless. Jamie Margolin and her many accomplices provide the sockets to plug into-the (clean) electricity comes pouring through these pages, and anyone who reads them will know what to do to make a real difference."--Bill McKibben, founder of and New York Times bestselling author of Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?
"Among the many lessons in Jamie Margolin's inspiring manifesto Youth to Power is the counsel to 'find your why.' It is the advice of a wise elder in the voice of a young activist. Everyone, young and old, should read this enlightened and engaging call to action. It is a roadmap for a new generation of social activists and perhaps a critical piece of what may save us as a species and a planet. History will remember this book."
--Ken Burns

It provides us with comprehensive deep dives into the lives of youth activists, revealing the hardships and motivations behind all the work they do."--Jaclyn Corin
