Lisa Fithian has shut down the CIA. She has occupied Wall Street, disrupted the World Trade Organization, and stood her ground in Tahrir Square. She has walked in solidarity with tribal leaders at Standing Rock and defended communities in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Described by Mother Jones as “the nation’s best-known protest consultant,” Fithian has been involved in nearly every major protest event for the past four decades. She is living proof that the best way to radically and rapidly transform the ills of our society is through nonviolent direct action grounded in strong beliefs, creativity, and sheer, unwavering courage. Her new memoir, filled with instruction, inspiration, and no shortage of wisdom, argues that civil disobedience is much more than an act of resistance. It’s a spiritual pursuit that allows us to reclaim our humanity and protect what we love.
