Podcast Episode 002: Jim Anderson Shownotes

The first six episodes of Season 1 of the Keeping Things Alive podcast showcase my interviews with six leaders of the 2015 Rise Up for Climate Justice movement in Buffalo, New York. This movement started a few months after Pope Francis published his Encyclical, On Care for Our Common Home, and a few months before the 2015 Paris Climate Conference. I was fortunate enough to participate in many of the events, and I was so impressed with the diversity and energy of the activists that came together during this time.

My second interview is with Jim Anderson who is a peace activist, the President of Peace Action New York State, the Vice President of the Citizen Action New York Board of Directors, and a founding member of the National Black United Front. In this interview, we discuss the importance of teamwork, his experiences as an activist from the late 1960’s to today, and strategies that progressive groups can implement to be more effective in bringing people into the movement.

Here are the shownotes, with links to more information about what we talk about during my interview with Jim Anderson:
