A guide to being courageous and community-minded, and to disrupting and dismantling age-old power structures in work, life and politics, written by someone who has done exactly that.
Magid Magid came to Sheffield from Somalia as a refugee aged five. He is the youngest and first refugee and first Green Party Lord Mayor of Sheffield, and became an MEP for the Green Party in May 2019. Magid has made headlines nationally and internationally for his creative ways of campaigning while not conforming to tradition and being unapologetically himself. He has campaigned on climate change, support for migrants and refugees, set up the first UK suicide prevention charter and even banned Donald Trump from Sheffield. Magid was named one of the top European Young Leaders (Friends of Europe) 2019 and was part of the top 100 Future Leaders (apolitico.co).
We need progressive politicians now more than ever. We need
individuals who see the world for what it is, and respond with
passion and courage. My money's on Magid. * Thandie Newton *
If you ever doubt that you can make a difference, read this book! Full of inspiration, imagination, and above all, hope, Majid Majid offers a guide for anyone who want to achieve change and fight injustice, and shows from his own experience the extraordinary things that can happen when you refuse to take No for an answer. * Caroline Lucas, former Leader of the UK Green Party *
