The World We Need: Stories and Lessons from America’s Unsung Environmental Movement (The New Press, May 4, 2021) captures the riveting stories and hard-won strategies from a broad cross section of pivotal environmental actions and highlights the struggles against polluting corporations and industry while featuring movements, activists, and organizations that are already working toward a positive vision of a just, regenerative society.  
The World We Need provides a vivid introduction to America’s largely unsung grassroots environmental groups—often led by activists of color and the working class—valiantly fighting back in America’s so-called sacrifice zones against industries poisoning our skies and waterways and heating our planet. Collecting interviews, journalistic reports, first-person essays, and artwork, editor Audrea Lim touches on a wide range of topics, including the Keystone XL pipeline, drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and poor sanitation in rural communities and showcases the racial, socioeconomic, and cultural diversity of the modern-day environmental movement.
