Riva will be joined by three people who were interviewed in the book:

Deborah S. Rogers, author and activist on refugees and the US wars that cause them, president of Initiative for Equity, a global network of 300 organizations working towards greater social, economic, and political equality in over 90 countries.

Antonia Juhasz, award-winning policy-analyst, author, and journalist, covering oil and energy policy, and the role of oil in conflict, particularly the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,

Michael Kroll, writer and activist specializing in the American criminal justice system. He was the first executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center.

“Follow the Money” is a transcription of sixty-six interviews on KPFA’s Program “Flashpoints” between program host Dennis Bernstein, and people like tonight's panelists as well as Alice Walker; Phil Donahue; Ramsey Clark; Laura Flanders; Danny Glover; Marjorie Cohn; Dolores Huerta; John Pilger; Helen Caldicott; Vijay Prashad; Greg Palast; Brian Willson; Ali Abunimah; and Richard D. Wolff, and has an introduction by Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Interviews are grouped by such themes as The New and Not so New Police State; The Class War; Domestic Dissent; Black Lives; Church, State, Women, and the Criminalization of Sexuality; Migration, Deportation, and US-Latino Culture; Global Militarization and Empire; Ongoing Bloodshed in the Holy Land; and There is No Plan(et) B.

The book has been described as an “encyclopedia of resistance,” a “book of hope,” which illustrates how “the nation is bursting with movements.”

This event is endorsed by the Gray Panthers of San Francisco; Veterans for Peace, San Francisco; and Task Force on the Americas of Marin County.
