ITS NOT TO LATE!
Crisis, Opportunity, and the Power of Hope
By Frances Moore Lappé
Limited Edition release scheduled for mid-2020
It’s Not Too Late! offers a surprising and motivating new lens through which to see the climate crisis. Though many feel overwhelmed and tempted to give up, we find a genuine ray of hope: The very severity of the climate crisis could trigger an historic awakening, enabling us to grasp causal connections among the climate crisis, our broken political system, and our economic distress.
With this awakening we can address the three roots simultaneously—and then take the necessary steps to create a just, sustainable, and prosperous future for us all. We can—and must—build a livable America capable of positive global leadership. Our book lays out why ... and how.

It's Not Too Late is the 20th book that Frances has written in 50 years! This book dives deep into the roots of Democracy and Climate Change, and most importantly—can regular citizens in their daily lives propel America, with nearly 250 years of experience as a bold, innovative nation, back into global leadership on these questions?
EVERY MOVEMENT NEEDS A SIGN...
Every movement needs a hand sign.
Here’s our idea for the Democracy Movement:
it’s the letter “d” in American sign language, and with a raised arm it seems to shout
“I count” and “1 person, 1 vote!”
