Third Rail Eps 16: How Do You Change the World?

January 20th, 2015  |  by Veralyn Williams |  Published in Podcast

In this episode of Third Rail we discuss two potential strategies for community and social justice wins. First by examining black and brown neighborhoods in other cities, that may have some lessons for Central Brooklyn on the gentrification front. And then by tackling an age-old community organizing question: is it best to fight for social justice change from inside or outside “the system?”

Segments

1. Lessons from Other Cities: Gentrification isn’t unique to Brooklyn, NYC, or even the USA. What does gentrification look like in Black and Brown communities outside of Central Brooklyn? And what are the lessons we can learn from other cities with changing economic climates?

2. Inside/Outside Game: We’re tackling an age-old community organizing question: is it best to fight for social justice change from inside or outside the system? While we’re at it, what constitutes, “the system,” and on what side of the line do government, foundations, media and nonprofit organizations fall?

3. “Tell em why you mad” Roundup
