Talk with Sarah van Gelder. YES! Magazine co-founder and editor at large Sarah van Gelder drove 20,000 kilometers through the heartland of the United States, living in her tiny truck camper, interviewing people on Native American reservations, in rust belt cities, Appalachian towns, and southern communities. Her book, “The Revolution Where You Live: Stories from a 12,000 Mile Journey Through a New America” (Berrett Koehler, 2017), tells the stories of broken economies, devastated ecosystems, and communities shattered by racism, violence, and exclusion. But the focus of her book is on the extraordinary work of ordinary people who are transforming their communities, even in the places that seemed to have run out of hope. In her talk, van Gelder will tell stories and show photographs from her road trip and from her reporting trips to the unprecedented gathering of Native peoples happening at Standing Rock, North Dakota. Her book has received glowing reviews from Ralf Nader, Francis Moore Lappé, Mark Ruffalo, John Perkins and others.
