The Environmental Forum: Comparing Grassroots & National Organizing


The first of our series, The Environmental Forum, deals with the differences between large, small, local, national and international environmental grassroots groups.
The substance of this discussion by Kim Fraczek of Occupy The Pipeline, JK Canepa of NY Climate Action Group, Donna Stein of NYC Friends of Clearwater, Tim Keating of Rainforest Relief and Ken Gale of the Eco-Logic radio show, was at such a high level that it inspired us to look for ways to do this more often. This particular episode has also been made available as a DVD premium during a recent fund raiser of WBAI-99.5 FM’s fund drive.
