In addition to my handbooks for journalists and human rights defenders, I’ve written and edited several books and anthologies that spotlight everyday heroes who risk their lives to make the world a better place.

In this anthology, which I edited and co-wrote, 20 human rights defenders from across Africa share their activist journeys and reveal what inspires their fight for LGBTQI+ equality. Some are deeply personal stories of self-discovery and acceptance. Others chart the challenges LGBTQI+ rights groups face in discriminatory environments. All carry messages of hope and dreams for a better tomorrow. We commissioned queer and ally artists to bring each story to life with original illustrations that depict the joys and struggles of this collective movement.
For this book, I profiled 20 global changemakers who use intercultural and interreligious dialogue to advance peaceful coexistence in their communities and beyond. These “Heroes of Dialogue” represent 6 religions across 14 countries. Each community leader profiled promotes peace and inclusivity by reaching out to “the Other” and leading community-wide movements that help heal the wounds of conflict.
“Heroes of Dialogue” received widespread acclaim when it was published in 2019, and requests flooded in for additional resources. I adapted 12 of the stories from “Heroes of Dialogue” for this special “Classroom Edition” geared for a younger audience. This book highlights some of the young heroes who live among us and use dialogue to build peaceful, inclusive societies.
