The Roots of Resistance – A New Book By Rivera Sun

Posted by Ryan Hall
11.14.17

Author, friend and Pace e Bene nonviolence trainer Rivera Sun has a new book coming out called Roots of Resistance the sequel to her powerful novel The Dandelion Insurrection!   Before she publishes it though, she needs your help to back the project.  Visit her Indiegogo page to help contribute and make this book a reality!

While her new book is full hope and inspiration, Rivera’s personal journey this year has also been one of real challenge but also overwhelming hope as she fought and beat ovarian cancer.  We are so grateful for the wisdom and guidance Rivera has provided to Pace e Bene and Campaign Nonviolence over the past few years and we are now filled with joy to know that she is cancer free!

Rivera wrote in an email to friends that “I was ‘told’ over and over again in this process that I am ‘here to love and write’ (in that order). One of the greatest gifts in this journey was being able to write through it all, and get the new novel out.”  We celebrate with Rivera today in both her writing and in gratitude for the person that she is, a woman on the nonviolent journey of love and peace.

We encourage everyone to order your copy of Rivera’s new book on her Indiegogo page here!
