"As a developer of emerging leaders across the social purpose sector, I view Social Movements for Good as an instructive roadmap for understanding the practices and distinct elements that go into creating and maintaining sustainable social movements. Mr. Feldmann's revealing interviews with leaders from the different sectors supports his case for how a durable and resilient social movement can thrive and lift up its followers. Add the overlay of how the influential millennial generation, a group Mr. Feldmann has studied extensively, supports social movements for good, it becomes quite apparent how these movement are becoming a more integral part of America's growing for-purpose society. In addition to being a wonderful how-to book, Social Movements for Good provides the reader with inspiring antidotes that underscore the importance of social media and how it has revolutionized the way we organize change across sectors." Richard A. Brown, Vice President, Philanthropy, American Express The Millennial maestro adds great value to our understanding of what is takes to create, grow and sustain social movements. In a personal and engaging way Derrick walks through the emotional elements that draw people in and motivate them to take action. He offers great insights and solid data to support his contentions and the reader comes away knowing a lot more about Millennials and social movements. Diana Aviv, CEO, Feeding America "Social Movements for Good takes the reader along a wonderful journey into "How" to build engaging social movements. Derrick Feldmann, through crisp commentary, shares the roles for people donors, activists and promoters to play in authentic movement building. He also conveys key elements to sustain the movement: lead with the social issue and not the organization; apply empathy as a magnet for engagement, use technology as a tool, not the campaign and activate online and offline. Social Movements for Good is a GPS for those who want a hands on guide to change the world."

While no book can provide a foolproof recipe for a movement's success, this book includes all the ingredients."
