I am also envisioning a brand new project to create a “population awareness national bus tour”, where a bus would travel to all US states stopping at key population centers to share the message of the need to address overpopulation and overconsumption. It would be great to have a collection of books that we can give to key influencers along the way. I am always documenting my work in pictures and have many that I could share with you. I was also featured in PopX magazine just last month: http://www.biologicaldiversity.org/programs/population_and_sustainability/pop_x/pop_x_issue_50.html (scroll to the bottom). I would love to use the book at every opportunity in which we leverage the influence of existing leaders within society, whether it is influential teachers, professors, student activistis, lawyers, mayors, assemblymembers (see http://asmdc.org/members/a15/other-resources/there-ought-to-be-a-law-contest), congresspeople, religious leaders, business people who share our mission and want to promote it etc. We are constantly expanding our network to reach out to more communities of smart and motivated individuals and institutions. My focus is on YOUTH education and bringing YOUTH voices into society and government. These books will have a strong impact on young people who care about THEIR future on this planet, since they still have most of their life AHEAD of them!” She will work with 20 books.
There are many ways to participate! Together, we can raise awareness and bring about change.
