You’re More Powerful than You Think: A Citizen’s Guide to Making Change Happen by Eric Liu

Eric Liu, founder of Citizen’s University, has published a new book: You’re More Powerful than You Think: A Citizen’s Guide to Making Change Happen (Public Affairs).  This book offers a timely perspective on bottom-up citizen power and elaborates on Liu’s recent article in the Atlantic:  “How Donald Trump Is Reviving American Democracy.”  An interview with Liu on the WNYC Leonard Lopate show highlighted the important role of local citizen dialogue at spaces like libraries.  Here’s a recording of the interview: https://www.wnyc.org/story/enacting-change-bottom/.
