Description

For evil to Flourish it only requires good men to do nothing”, “Freedom is not a gift from Heaven, one must fight for it every day”and “Freedom of speech is not the freedom to propagate hatred” are only a few of the quotes that inspired young people to thoughtfully write about racism, bullying, intolerance, LGBT issues, anti-Semitism and genocide in this compelling collection.   From different races and backgrounds the writers here respond to the social justice and human rights concerns that confront them and the world today. Selected from submissions made to the “Speaker’s Idol” competition conceived by editor Ari Bentola for the Wiethenthal  Center,  which challenges young people to consider how they would like to change the world to make it a better place. Compelling and honest, “Voices for Change” reflects the fears and hopes of their generation and demands that all humanity must do better.
