The Upside: Agency 05.29.19

At the Root is a new project that creates events and conversations that promote social justice work in community settings. I talk with creator jen berger about her work and how it taps into a very timely need for connection and action. Stick around for music that inspires, with a focus on funk and feedback from Rage Against the Machine, the Coup, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, and Jimi Hendrix.
