That age-old quest for meaning - Who am I? What is my calling? How can I make the world better? - is about to get a twentyfirst century makeover by one of the most widely read young writers on social change.In Do It Anyway, Martin explores the lives and motivations of eight activists - not superhuman heroes, but ordinary young people searching for their own way to make a difference. Among others, we meet Raul Diaz, a prison re-entry social worker at Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles; Nia Robinson, an African American climate- change activist in Washington, D.C.; and Rosario Dawson, an actor struggling to use her celebrity for social change while staying authentic in her activism.
