While the field of parks, recreation, and leisure has come a long way as a human service profession, it still has a long way to go. This is evident when you think about social and environmental justice.

With few notable exceptions, we have not paid enough attention to these themes, and it is time we give them their due. It's time to move us in the right direction.

Speaking Up and Speaking Out takes a three-legged tack by addressing the importance of self-reflection and seeking to know ourselves, discussing individuals and groups at the margins, and finally preparing readers for socially and environmentally responsible activism.

You won't want to miss this innovative compilation of 23 highly respected educators as they raise their voices in the name of social and environmental justice.
