Journalist and author Wen Stephenson discusses his new book What We’re Fighting For Now Is Each Other.

Stephenson provides a candid look at some of the “new American radicals” who are risking everything to build a stronger climate justice movement. What motivates them? How can individual, local actions really affect a larger global movement?

Wen Stephenson, an independent journalist and climate activist, is a contributing writer for the Nation. Formerly an editor at the Atlantic and the Boston Globe, he’s also written about climate, culture, and politics for Slate, the New York Times, and Grist.
