Listen: Why We March – Activists on The Line’s Newest Podcast Episode

3/29/18

These days, record-breaking crowds are gathering, marching, protesting and cheering for issues that demand both immediate action and long-term solutions, from women’s rights to gun control and climate change. Mass demonstrations have always been critically important tools for civil and human rights movements and right now, they’re a big part of what it means to be an engaged citizen. The fact that we’re seeing such big crowds and so many demonstrations around the world got us wondering:

  • What is it like to lead a march?
  • How do you organize one quickly in the face of rapidly changing current events? 
  • What does it take to create that kind of social movement? 
  • Why do people march and what do they expect will happen as a result?

For our newest episode of Activists on the Line, we sat down with activists from two march-leading organizations to get some answers. Breanne Butler is one of the co-founders of the Women’s March and Sara Shor is a campaign manager with 350.org, which helps hold leaders accountable and coordinates climate change demonstrations all over the world.
