1Book/1Project/2Transform

MSU Denver Roadways welcomes you to 1 Book/1 Project/2 Transform, an annual series that brings members of the MSU Denver community together to read a common book, participate in facilitated book discussions, and engage in a related community service project. By combining reading with social action and activism, Roadways builds community and transforms lives!

This year, we are excited to present Xiuhtezcatl Martinez’s powerful and inspiring call to action, We Rise: The Earth Guardians Guide to Building a Movement That Restores the PlanetAlthough he was only 17 years old when he wrote this book, Xiuhtezcatl has been a compelling voice of climate activism for more than a decade. He has given TED Talks, spoken to the United Nations, and filed lawsuits against Colorado and U.S. Federal governments to protect our environment. We hope his book moves you to consider issues of culture, creativity, environmental protection, and activism. We also hope this book moves you to engage in direct service of some sort with our greater Denver metropolitan community. As if that’s not enough, Xiuhtezcatl is an accomplished hip hop artist. We are looking forward to his visit to our campus in October 2019!

Make sure to mark your calendar for Xiuhtezcatl Martinez’s visit to our campus during the fall 2019 semester for an author talk on Wednesday October 16th  and a concert on Thursday October 17th.
