Liberal Fix seeks not to relive or revisit the tragedy that occurred nearly one year ago at Sandy Hook Elementary, but rather pay tribute once again to those who have been lost, but also visit a much different Newtown, Connecticut that is still healing, but growing stronger every day in part through the help of activists like the very inspirational Sarah Clements.  During this very memorable episode we feature a special preorecorded inverview with Sarah Clements.

Sarah Clements is a senior at Newtown High School. Her mother is a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School and a survivor of the shooting in December. Sarah uses change and activism to transform her painful experiences into positive action. She founded and leads the Jr. Newtown Action Alliance, the student branch of the Newtown Action Alliance, a grassroots organization that formed after 12/14 looking to address the issue of gun violence in America through legislative and cultural change. She looks forward to continuing her work in gun violence prevention by working with young people around the country, in urban and suburban areas, to help solve this problem which affects her generation so disproportionately.

Hosted by Indiana writer Dan Bimrose, sociologist Keith Brekhus from Montana and our producer Naomi Minogue.  Every Friday the three of them feature a special guest and tackle those tough issues with a pespective that comes from outside the beltway.
