Publisher's Summary

Performed by the acclaimed actor Michael B. Jordan (The Wire, Fantastic Four, Creed), Upstanders is a stirring tribute to the ordinary people who make a remarkable difference in big cities and small towns across the country.

For more than a year, Howard Schultz, the chairman and former CEO of Starbucks, and former Washington Post senior correspondent and associate editor Rajiv Chandrasekaran searched the country for even more of America's unsung heroes, as a follow-up to Upstanders' first season. Now you'll hear the stories and voices of the people they found - local citizens who are demonstrating unbelievable courage and inspiring a better America at a time when we need these heroes more than ever.

From the Dallas chef who's staffing his restaurant with former juvenile offenders, to the Missoula, Montana mother who opened her community's hearts and doors to refugees, to the Seattle firefighter who's helping to destigmatize post-traumatic stress among our nation's first responders - the 11 individuals featured in this second volume of Upstanders embody the American spirit and much of what's missing from today's national debate over how to salvage America's soul.

Through their passion for humanity, courage to lead, and willingness to act, the Upstanders we celebrate here remind us that we all have the power to create positive change in our communities and beyond.

just simply remarkable!

In an age where larger than life heroes grab our attention, it is more spectacular for me to understand that every day heroes dedicate themselves to make their world a little bit better through selfless consistent acts of courage!

Liberal drivel!

Hard to sit and listen to a Schultz driven narrative...liar that he is..."non-partisan"?

listen to the last chapter especially...a carbon tax to be paid upfront...

Schultz who was helped many times by his original landlord in downtown Seattle...no up front monies then...j

Very political

Not political? Bullpucky. Very anti-Trump and liberal. Stories are uplifting, but very pro-Democratic agenda and pro Obama.

Very uplifting and informative.

I enjoyed listening to this. The narrator was easy to listen to and the material was both informative and a way to see all the good being done in the world. If the nightly news depresses you, try this instead. What a terrific way to highlight some civic minded people who want to improve our world.👏
