The Space Between the Olives, A Story of Civic Engagement, a book dealing with youth, community activism and immigration issues, is now available.

Originally published in Spanish, The Space Between the Olives: A Story of Civic Engagement is based on a true story. It is a tale of courage, solidarity, civic action, and commitment.

It is a much-needed example to inspire readers to produce significant changes in their own communities at the grassroots level.
