If you’re inspired to enact powerful and meaningful social change but don’t know where to start, Taking Action: Creating Social Change through Strength, Solidarity, Strategy, and Sustainability is the strategic, interactive guide for you!

Drawing on their collective experience in career counseling, multicultural counseling, psychology, and social justice, authors Rebecca Toporek and Muninder Ahluwalia guide you through an exciting, four-principle approach that will jumpstart your personal and professional activism.

The dynamic workbook helps you identify your personal strengths and resources, connect with others, and develop effective strategies to enact change, all the while encouraging self-care and care of those you love. Throughout, you’ll have extensive opportunities to build knowledge, reflect on your experiences, assess your abilities, and construct a plan that effects change.
