Ep. 09: The Political Arm Of Activism w/Justin Cummings


All politics is local, so we thought we'd invite one of Santa Cruz, CA's new  City Council members* up to mountains to talk for a while. Justin ran on a host of progressive policies like rent control, workers rights/living wage, and how to preserve Santa Cruz's open spaces. In addition to a background in local activism, he's the director of the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program UCSC and holds a PhD in Ecology.
