After many years and lots of sweat and tears, Lisa’s book about the power of nonviolent direct action and people power movements is hitting the shelves on September 3, 2019!   Stories range from the Pledge of Resistance in the 1980’s to Justice for Janitors, the Global Justice Movement, Common Ground Relief after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, the Gaza Freedom March, OCCUPY, the Ferguson Uprising, to Standing Rock in 2016 with much more woven through.  I included tool boxes for some simple HOW TO’s and a bit of theory as well!   To learn more about the book you can go to

Hope you will buy the book and spread the word!

EAT began in late 2000 when author and activist Starhawk and permaculture designer and master teacher Penny Livingston-Stark asked some new questions: “What can permaculturalists and activists learn from each other that would make each more effective? What skills do people need to know in order to really ‘save the planet’? How can we teach these skills in ways that ripple out to others?” Penny and Starhawk combined their many years of knowledge and created the first Earth Activist Training, held the following spring in 2001. EAT took root and flourished.
