Crosscut Talks

Inside a New Era of Activism With the Women Leading the Charge

October 8, 2019

Grassroots activism has served a crucial role in American culture and politics throughout history. Getting out in the streets and marching in protest is still a valuable tool for the modern activist, but there are a lot of other ways activists spread the word and effect change these days, from social media campaigns to guerrilla marketing. For this episode of the Crosscut Talks podcast, Hashtag Feminism founder Tara Conley discussed these methods with three other activists: Shout Your Abortion's Amelia Bonow, Momsrising's Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner and Earth-Feather Sovereign of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Washington. This conversation was recorded on May 4, 2019, at Seattle University as part of the Crosscut Festival.
