Listen to We the Village, the radio version, on KCSB 91.9 FM at UCSB in Santa Barbara, CA, on Sundays at 2 am (or stream it online).
When we see injustice and we say no, we're not standing up for someone else. We're standing up for ourselves. Our liberties are tied together. And so is our ability to save the planet.
We the Village, a new podcast, features stories of and conversations with people whose lives and actions seek systemic equity; champion solutions; and resist the madness of policies that benefit the few, harm the masses, disenfranchise certain of our subvillages, and destroy the planet. Our narrative belongs to us, not corporate or government interests. Within our diverse villages' histories, struggles, and joys—the stories the powers that be don't want told, the stories of those who won't be put in boxes, the stories off the mainstream media's radar—can be found solutions.
