Thriving in the Fight: A Survival Manual for Latinas on the Front Lines of Change
by Denise Padín Collazo Author and Dr. Stacy Blake-Beard Foreword
Longtime activist Denise Collazo offers three keys to help Hispanic women keep their focus, morale, and energy high while doing the work of social change when the challenges of our time can be overwhelming, and sometimes progress is hard to see. Drawing on her own experiences of triumph and failure, and those of other Latina activists, she lays out three keys to thriving in the movement for social change: leading into your vision, living into the fullest version of yourself, and loving past negatives that hold you back. Using this framework, Collazo offers wise and compassionate advice on some of the most important leadership challenges facing Latina activists and explains how you can integrate family and work, step out of the background and claim your leadership potential, confront anti-Blackness in your own culture, keep focused on your ultimate purpose, and raise the necessary resources to keep fighting for justice.
