Environmentalist Brock Evans Launches Campaign Calling for a New Generation of "Eco-Warriors"

New book "Fight & Win: Brock Evans's Strategies for the New Eco-Warrior" to serve as a how-to for young environmental activists

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Endangered Species Coalition Board President and legend in the environmental protection movement Brock Evans will release his new book, "Fight & Win: Brock Evans's Strategies for the New Eco-Warrior," this Saturday, January 25. With the book and a corresponding fundraising campaign to get free copies into the hands of young adults, Evans aims to ignite a new movement of environmental activism and give novice advocates the tools they need to fight for lasting change.

Part memoir, part how-to manual, the 200-page hardback — now available for purchase at www.barclaybryanpress.com and www.amazon.com — provides readers with tactics and first-hand accounts of how to effectively form an environmental grassroots campaign, take part in the lobbying process, maximize the potential impact of social media, and take on the oil, timber, mining and energy industries — as well as other corporate interests — in defense of our nation's air, water, forestland and wildlife.

"I've known Brock as a leader among conservation activists through two generations," says Grammy award-winning performer and environmentalist Carole King. King is hopeful that the book will teach thousands of young activists "to carry the conservation movement forward with courage, wisdom and persistence!"

Evans has partnered with his publisher, Barclay Bryan Press, to start the Fight & Win fundraising campaign. Donations to the campaign will be used to purchase at-cost copies of the book for interested high schools and colleges across the U.S. In addition, proceeds will also be used to provide the book to environmental organizations and help develop the next generation of activists though trainings. To donate to the campaign, visit www.bbpress.squarespace.com/fight-win-campaign.

"I know there are armies of high school and college students and other young activists out there who are ready to help stop global warming," says Evans. "And my generation in the conservation movement is proud of the thousands of young people who are as passionate as we veterans are about saving our still-beautiful planet."

Award-winning filmmaker and writer Chris Palmer is excited about the impact of Evans's unusual how-to guide. "It's a gem of a book," Palmer says, "and a must-read for aspiring eco-warriors and citizen activists."
