What Students Say

From SJSU Student Joana Sierra, Sophomore and Orientation Leader

"In my freshman year English Stretch Class, a remarkable book called "All We Can Save" was introduced to me. I was able to have a life changing experience reading this book that left me with a comprehensive awareness of the climate catastrophe and my responsibility to fix it. This book provided personal accounts that raised the voices of women establishing environmental justice and climate action. A strong sense of hope, urgency, and group action is evoked by the depth and diversity of perspectives that are weaved across its pages. I was able to educate myself and discover more about the general crisis that marginalized people face. Which is why I urge our incoming freshmen to read this book because All We Can Save, in my opinion, has the power to inspire a generation and give them a renewed sense of purpose in the struggle for a better world.
