GUEST: Greg Jobin-Leeds, Founder and Board chair of the Schott Foundation for Public Education, writer, high school and adult literacy teacher, and author with AgitArte, of the new book, ‘When we Fight We Win! Twenty First Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World’.

The white armed militia in Oregon and the rise of Donald Trump and his hordes of supporters are enough to cause anxiety and depression. But although the rise of the right wing has scared many progressives, there is in fact much to celebrate. The LGBT movement has won serious victories for marriage equality. The racial justice movement has started a major conversation to assert that Black Lives Matter. Fast food and Walmart workers have scored crucial victories for higher wages. While there is still a long way to go in our struggles, the fact is that, according to my guest, “When We Fight, we Win.” That’s the title of his new book. The subtitle is “Twenty First Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World.”
