    Dear NTEN Colleagues,

    Check out this new book by my friend John McNutt:

    "Technology, Activism, and Social Justice in a Digital Age"

    https://global.oup.com/academic/product/technology-activism-and-social-justice-in-a-digital-age-9780190903992?cc=us&lang=en&#

    He is a professor of public policy at the University of Delaware. You can learn more about his research here:

    Here's the blurb for "Technology, Activism, and Social Justice in a Digital Age"

    "Technology, Activism, and Social Justice in a Digital Age offers a close look at both the present nature and future prospects for social change. In particular, the text explores the cutting edge of technology and social change, while discussing developments in social media, civic technology, and leaderless organizations -- as well as more traditional approaches to social change. It effectively assembles a rich variety of perspectives to the issue of technology and social change; the featured authors are academics and practitioners (representing both new voices and experienced researchers) who share a common devotion to a future that is just, fair, and supportive of human potential. They come from the fields of social work, public administration, journalism, law, philanthropy, urban affairs, planning, and education, and their work builds upon 30-plus years of research. The authors' efforts to examine changing nature of social change organizations and the issues they face will help readers reflect upon modern advocacy, social change, and the potential to utilize technology in making a difference."

    Best regards from Deborah
