EPISODE 2: AMERICA’S MAESTRO OF ORGANIZING, MARSHALL GANZ

This interview is with “America’s Maestro of Organizing”, renowned agent of social change, Marshall Ganz. Marshall’s early work as a Freedom Rider in the 1960s led to his helping Caesar Chavez accelerate the farm worker movement in the 1970s and then ultimately to his groundbreaking work to empower citizens in political campaigns, including the historic 2008 campaign to elect Barak Obama. Hear Marshall’s take on America’s Purpose and how each of us can help advance it through citizen actions in our local neighborhoods and beyond. Building on ancient wisdom and American ideals informed and intertwined with his years of on-the-ground experience, Marshall has a powerful and inspiring message for all of us.
