What’s On Your Sign? is unique among books on activism:
This book doesn’t tell you to head to the streets. It helps you recognize what you bring to the table that will create positive change on an issue.
This book helps you focus on your passion. Other books direct you to the author’s cause.
This book will inspire you to do something other than march. Activist profiles include the painter, singer, musician, children’s book author, playwright, craftivist, serial entrepreneur, and others—all using their talents to further a cause.
Even if activism is not your thing, this presentation will help you find better focus for your life.
We meet in the cafeteria annex at the back of the Goins Administration Building. Come early for coffee and conversation.
