Organizing for Our Lives: New Voices from Rural Communities

by Richard Steven Street and Samuel Orozco

Foreword by César Chavez

Large-format book, includes 64 photographs

This book is a co-publishing effort by NewSage Press and the California Rural Legal Assistance that highlights the positive changes that have taken place among the rural poor in America. Organizing for Our Lives features six inspiring stories of people engaged in grassroots efforts to build a new leadership and overcome the cultural isolation and poverty that have traditionally kept them separate and ineffective. Their stories include those of East Indian and Mexican parents cooperating to improve their children’s education; Asian refugees’ efforts to find economic stability; a grass-roots Mexican-American women’s group and a farming community fighting a toxic waste incinerator among others.

 

Richard Steven Street, a photographer and writer, has worked extensively on California agricultural issues. His photos have been nominated twice for a Pulitzer Prize.

Samuel Orozco is the news director for Radio Bilingue in Fresno, California, and the executive producer of Noticiero Latino.
