Citizen Muckraking: How to Investigate and Right Wrongs in Your Community.


Perhaps like Terri and John Moore you've found your new dream home 100 feet from a proposed landfill. Or like Joan Robinett are suspicious of your local water quality. Let The Center for Public Integrity guide you through the intimidating process of gathering information and using it to fight back against environmental injustices, with its recently released Citizen Muckraking: How to Investigate and Right Wrongs in Your Community (Common Courage Press, $15.95). As the book points out, "Citizen Muckraking provides a road map for reaching a goal that is often elusive, but is every citizen's right: holding officials and institutions accountable for their actions." --J.B.
