Author Bio

Zach Hunter is a teenage abolitionist and activist, spending much of his time working to end modern-day slavery around the world and fighting other problems in the world today. When he was twelve, he started a campaign called Loose Change to Loosen Chains, helping to raise awareness and money to free people from slavery. The author of Be the Change, Zach speaks to hundreds of thousands of people each year, inspiring them to find their passion and make a change in the world.

Abolitionist Zach Hunter challenges people to fix the world in Be the Change. Hunter calls for more than the end of modern-day slavery; he urges readers to make a difference wherever they see a problem, be it hunger, AIDS, or racism. He proves that anyone can help remedy the ills of society.

Each chapter highlights a quality that world-changers need, such as courage, compassion, and endurance. Hunter bolsters his explanations with inspiring examples from the past, referencing William Wilberforce, Rosa Parks, and Winston Churchill. He adds to these the stories of modern-day slaves from around the globe. At the end of every chapter are questions that will focus the reader’s thoughts and lead him a step closer to taking action.

Underneath everything Hunter writes is the truth of Proverbs 31:8-9: "Speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy."

Hunter, now 19, began his crusade to free the earth's 27 million slaves at the age of 12. Since then, he has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people, raising awareness with his organization Loose Change to Loosen Chains.

Hunter writes in a conversational tone, though his voice is sometimes plain. The stories that fill his book are fascinating, but short. Nonetheless, Be the Change is a practical guide to fulfilling a passion for justice and reform. Mark Glenchur, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    The book, "Be the Change" by Zach Hunter is written by a teen who has made a difference in the lives of many people. As a modern-day abolitionist, Zach attempts to get other teens interested in his mission and teach them that they are not too young to make a difference.

    I thought that the book was informative. I liked that there were many stories about past slaves who were freed due to help they received from people like Zach. I was a little disappointed to find out that there was nothing about starting my own effort to free modern day slaves or more information about modern human trafficking in general.
