Risking Arrest in the Fight for Climate Action – August 22, 2017

Podcast ponders the role of civil disobedience in the climate movement for activists young and old

If you are trying to figure out how to respond to the mounting climate crisis, the newly released Stepping Up podcast has you covered. Each story tells a tale of people taking a stand in unique and surprising ways: A bunch of kids organizing a global movement; a millennial learning how to talk to his climate denying congressman; an evangelical doing the Lord’s work by saving the planet; climate clowns donning red noses and taking to the streets. One of their stories might just give you inspiration to find your own path forward. In any case, these stories are fun and imaginative and often funny to listen to.
