“Harm Reduction & Progress In Trump’s America” w/@GreenNewsReport & @ClaudiaStellar — #KatieSpeakShow Ep66 12/10/2016

In brief: The lovely Desi Doyen from The Green News Report is on to talk climate activism and harm reduction in the Trump era. There’s definitely some bad news, but my always positive friend will keep you from throwing your hands up and storming out. Also on the show, the brilliant Claudia Garcia-Rojas, on in her role as co-director of The Chicago Taskforce on Violence Against Girls & Young Women. Prepare yourself: she will blow your mind more than once.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
