018: Charlie Furman: Organizing and Activism in the Digital Age

This week I talk to Charlie Furman, an Activist and Digital Organizer who creates campaigns focused on creative internet organizing to spread movements quickly and meaningfully over many channels. Charlie was a campaign manager for Fight for the Future and faught hard for Net Neutrality and against the Trans Pacific Partnership and was also a digital organizer for 350.org, People’s Climate movement, and Demand Progress. He’s so active and has so many insights into how we take issues we feel strongly about and turn our thoughts into actions. Finally we talk about his latest project GOPcausedTrump.org, a timeline of how we ended up with Donald Trump as the Republican Presidential Candidate.

If you liked this interview, I think you'll enjoy my interview with activist, Tia Lebherz

Tia Lebherz talks in depth about saving water and other threats to our environment. First, we talk about her work at WaterNow Alliance and how WaterNow is bringing together people to find innovative ways to save water on the West Coast. Then we’ll talk about her work for Food and Water Watch as the California organizer and the importance of banning fracking, specifically in California.

I talk to Karen Chiang, a former Peace Corps volunteer who was stationed for over two years in a small town in Senegal.
