Xiuhtezcatl Martinez is a 17-year-old climate activist, hip-hop artist, and powerful new voice on the front lines of a global youth-led movement. Beginning with the empowering story of the Earth Guardians and how Xiuhtezcatl has become the voice of a generation, We Rise explores all aspects of effective activism to address some of the greatest issues of our times and provides step-by-step information on how to start or join a solution-oriented movement. If you are interested in creating real and radical change, We Rise will give you the inspiration and information you need to make the world a better place and leave you asking: If I don't step up, who will?
PS - Longtime advocate for the environment, Leonardo DiCaprio, endorsed my book! "Climate change will impact the livability of our planet for future generations. It is our youth – those whose commitment to the causes of sustainability, conservation and preservation, will drive the change we so desperately need. Xiuhtezcatl, through his art, is informing and galvanizing a new movement of leaders who are ready to emerge as our best hope for a brighter future." -Leonardo DiCaprio
