Peaceful Fights for Equal Rights

by Rob Sanders, illustrated by Jared Andrew Schorr, is a simple but effective guide to ways in which people in a society can create changes. In words that read like upbeat chants, the book shows the many ways in which ordinary citizens can participate in a democracy: “Listen. Learn. Lead. Light a candle. Write a letter. Pass laws. March. Mediate. Meditate. Motivate. Never stop.” The illustrations show a wide range of people working toward similar goals, whether it’s voting, reading books in a classroom, or handing out flyers. This is a quick introduction to civics, but the book’s back pages include a glossary and some historical facts about community action. (Non-Fiction)
