Familial leadership has often emerged to initiate change, whether it is to respond to a national disaster, create a solution for social problems, or answer an immediate community or state need.
This book is intended to provide dynamic examples of familial leadership leading to social change. Each chapter should explain the initial motivation behind the response, people involved, ways in which goals were accomplished, and the final outcome(s). For the purpose of this book, “family” is defined as an extended-kin model of family made up of a community of parents, siblings, grandparents and other relatives which should be recognized as a primary family (United States Supreme Court, 1977).
This call for proposals is for a broadly based, edited book, welcoming a variety of contributors, settings, and causes. The audience of this book is diverse; it is intended for classrooms, educational sites, community settings, and recreational reading.
In an effort to help those terribly affected by Hurricane Sandy in her home state of New Jersey, co-editor Randi Petersen and her family of five initiated what began as a simple collection of water. These initial twelve cases of water launched an overwhelmingly successful fundraiser. The editors believe that families across the country engage in such goodwill daily and at a time when the world seems inundated with bad news and tragedy, family leadership that seeks positive change should be documented and celebrated.
If interested, please submit a proposal of no more than 500 words by May 1, 2013.
Proposals will be selected by the co-editors and notified by June 1, 2013.
The deadline for the final draft will be October 1, 2013.
Please direct proposals and inquiries to: Randi Petersen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
