|In the new book, 'Be The Change: How to Get What You Want in Your Community,' Linzey and Anneke Campbell, an environmental justice documentary filmmaker, argue that it's time to stop begging the government and corporations to cause less harm. It's time to replace corporate minority decision-making with community self-government. Linzey and Campbell write about people from all walks of life doing just that by leaving their comfort zones to become community leaders. Through his work with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) and the Daniel Pennock Democracy School, Linzey and others are helping communities across the country learn how laws actually work and organize effective responses to corporations exploiting water, air, resources and land. The Daniel Pennock Democracy School is named in honor of Danny Pennock, a 17-year-old from PA who died of sludge poisoning.|
