This is a subject that most people don’t think really concerns them. Most people probably don’t have a real need to have a law changed. Indeed, they probably don’t know they even have this power. We are used to living in our society and doing the everyday things we need to do every day, without thinking about the impact we can have on the system itself. But we live in a democracy and it is our responsibility to try to change a law that is unjust or unfair. It is our responsibility to understand our system of government and use it to improve our lives and our communities. In How To Change A Law, John Thibault gives us a seven-step guide to greater participation in our government and a practical manual to community activism.

What I like most about How To Change A Law is that it is practical. The total process of changing a law is a very lengthy and complicated one, but John Thibault breaks the process down into manageable steps that any citizen can follow and have an impact on his city, county, state, and even country. How To Change A Law is well written and well organized by someone who knows the process and knows how to teach it to others. This should be a part of civics classes all over America. This knowledge is something every citizen should have access to. John Thibault has done a lot of us a big favor by writing this book.
