Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

From combating hate crimes and workplace discrimination to debunking myths about homosexuality and child abuse, this all-in-one guide shows lesbians, gays, bisexuals and everyone else how to promote change in everyday life. The editors, both former APA congressional fellows, bring together psychologists, lawyers and health experts to offer concrete advice on ways of empowering oneself and becoming an advocate for equality. Offering examples of concrete changes that have been made-such as passage of the Hate Crimes Statistics Act of 1990-they provide the kind of hard facts on which successful activism must be based, as well as information on how to establish relationships with members of Congress, policy affecting housing discrimination and policies affecting gays and lesbians in the military. Helpful sidebars explain how to prepare an effective briefing memo or op-ed piece, and how to report and document hate crimes, while an appendix lists Web resources. This is an informative guide for those who want to make a difference.

"Now, a comprehensive new reference collects in one volume the strategies, hard data and legal arguments that are central to the fight for equality in lesbian, gay and bisexual life. Up-to-date and readable, "Everyday Activism, A Handbook for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual People "And Their Allies, is the one essential book that provides the basic facts...an indispensable reference."
-Turner Pike, The Bottom Line
"This is truly a one-of-a-kind book. I don't know of another 'getting down to brass tacks, here's what you do about this particular situation' reference work. I hope "Everyday Activism is put to good use.."
---Betty DeGeneres, author of "Love, Ellen: A Mother/Daughter Journey
""Everyday Activism is a practical guidebook for working within the system...for those seeking to influence senators, members of Congress, and other officials."
..."a comprehensive guide to how the queer populace can unite and fight for common causes... clear cut chapters offer cogent arguments in favor of progressive politics and provide information on how to join the fight for queer rights...."
""Everyday Activism is a wake-up call. Engaging, eye-opening, and above all encouraging, this much-needed practical guide to personal activism should be required reading for everyone who believes there's nothing they can-and should-do to make a difference.."
--Michael Thomas Ford, author of "The World Out There: Becoming Part of the Lesbian and Gay Community

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I assigned this book for a course I'm teaching on social policy and the LGBT community and my students love it. It's easy to read, totally accessible, and really highlights how policy impacts everyday life for LGBT people. This book will obviously continue to grow outdated in terms of policy changes in the courts and legislature. But it will remain useful as a snapshot of all the areas in which policy and politics touches our lives.
