"Big Citizenship" tells how, in the face of drastic budget cutbacks, Khazei led the effort to save AmeriCorps by convincing a huge coalition of people--members of Congress on both sides of the aisle, governors and mayors from around the country, private sector leaders, editorial boards of major newspapers, and thousands of American citizens--to lend their support to the fight. His journey--from the most local of grassroots engagement to Washington, D.C.--is an extraordinary story, and a vital model of idealism in action.
