We hear how activism has evolved over almost 50 years in an intergenerational conversation about what it takes to change the world.

We hear from Eva Jones, a high school sophomore who is a newly energized advocate against gun violence and Cathy Wood Wyrick, who took part in anti-war protests at Portland State University in 1970. We also hear from Cameron Whitten who has been in the news most recently for his event series known as “Reparations Happy Hour” or “Reparations Power Hour” and Art Alexander, who volunteered with the Black United Front before going on to a career in public policy.

This show was taped June 12 with an audience as part of an event put on by Senior Advocates for Generational Equity (SAGE) and their Citizen Project.
