Since the founding of the United States, small groups of concerned citizens have been instrumental in improving America. "Boomers to Millennials: Moving America Forward" is a call-to-action for a new, younger generation to take up the mantle of leadership, socially, politically, and economically. Co-authored by a father-son Boomer-Millennial duo, this timely book addresses hot-button issues – from immigration reform, to climate change, to discrimination based on race, religion, sexual orientation or gender – while also providing illuminating historical context. At a time of dire challenges to American Democracy, Rubin and Rubin argue that only an engaged group of young citizens, determined to make their mark on society, can meet the challenge of restoring the best of American values and provide a better future for all.
