How to Be an Activist: A practical guide to organising, campaigning and making change happen
 
 

From experienced campaigner Vanessa Holburn and with a foreword by award-winning animal welfare campaigner Lorraine Platt, this is the essential guide to activism.

'Essential reading for anyone looking to start a grassroots campaign - and useful bedtime reading for some of our political parties too' - Hannah Beckerman, Guardian

How To Be an Activist
covers everything you need to know to create a successful social campaign and bring about positive change no matter what your cause. This practical, inspirational book covers topics ranging from identifying your central issue and setting meaningful milestones and goals, to learning how to use the media effectively and stay safe and within the law.

It will help you with every step of your campaign, keeping you motivated through periods of self-doubt and staving off burnout as you celebrate milestones on the way to creating meaningful change in the world. With contributions from influential campaigners including Natasha Devon MBE.

Fresh from waving banners in the pouring rain, journalist and campaigner Vanessa Holburn passes on the lessons she has learned so the reader can fast track their movement to success.

This is the age of activism and everyone is invited to join the movement.
