The Climate Emergency is not far in the future, it’s here now.

So, what can we do about it?

Jamie’s book, Youth To Power, comes out June 2, 2020, as a guide to young organizers.

In this episode, my guest Shirley Raines, founder of Beauty 2 The Streetz, schools me on the mechanisms of creating change, which she does by providing makeovers on Skid Row with her ever-growing non-profit.
