From Changing Diapers to Changing the World: Why Moms Make Great Advocates and How to Get Started (Hardcover)
Cynthia Changyit Levin cared deeply about global poverty and hunger even before becoming a parent. But mothering her own children toughened her resolve to stand up for her values and work to become a better world for all kids. In this inspirational book "From Changing Diapers to Changing the World: Why Moms Make Great Advocates and How to Get Started," Levin offers step-by-step instructions on how to be an effective advocate, even while juggling diapers and naps. She shows how advocacy can take many forms, from phone calls and letters to fundraising and speaking in the halls of Congress. With warmth and humor, she demystifies the process of connecting with government officials, weaving in uplifting stories of mothers who have taken successful action on causes important to them. Besides improving the lives of others, mom-advocates also serve as great role models for their children, setting an example of grit and good character.
With their talents, persistence, and passion for helping others, mothers can inspire action to solve community and global problems...and become the change they want to see in the world.
