TCA issue 42 coverCheck out the latest issue of The Change Agent - When We Fight, We Win

When we fight, what might we win? In this issue, writers share their stories of struggle and reflect on the large and small things they have won in the process. Maybe by fighting, they achieved their goal. Or maybe they didn't achieve their goal yet, but by being in the fight, they've made friends, created community, used their voice, navigated a hard struggle, and discovered their power. What else might you win when you engage in the fight — whether it's an internal battle or a struggle to create social and political change? Read on to find out.
