For our live show on September 25th, Todd Alan and I welcome back writer, activist, and parent Mary DeMocker! Her book offers the perfect support to help you and the kiddos in your life begin this school year feeling inspired. The Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution: 100 Ways to Build a Fossil-Free Future, Raise Empowered Kids, and Still Get a Good Night’s Sleep (April 2018 from New World Library).
Starting with a project on her own front lawn to protest proposed fracking in Oregon, DeMocker’s project united her neighborhood, gave attention to the issue, brought in young children who helped with postcards and teenagers who drew social media attention. It made the news. Their families and friends showed up to cheer them on and left with a sense of optimism. And then parents came and asked, “Do you have a list of ten things I can do?” That list grew into her new book, which offers ten times the number of things families can do to grow closer and revolutionize. And it’s a menu of possibilities, not a ‘to-do’ list that no single human being, much less a busy parent could accomplish. Learn more about Mary at: http://www.marydemocker.com/
