LOCAL ORGANIZING FOR GLOBAL CHANGE WITH JESSICA CAMPBELL

  Broadcast in Politics

Call in to speak with the host

(760) 542-3900

There is a growing awareness that the only way to solve problems facing communities around the globe is acting at the local level for change on a national and international level. In our interconnected world, the solutions to the problems facing each of us can only be found by recognizing the effects of our actions on all of us.

Democracy depends on the equaltiy of rights of all humans. In a political system dominated by the power of corporations and a global economic elite, the only hope for peace is to find a way to build democracy in the US and to help others do the same in their nations.

No epitomizes that attitude better than Jessica Campbell, who became involved in local, national and international activism in high school, even serving on her local city council before graduation. In college, she made several trips to Palestine while organizing locally to raise awareness of Palestinian and other human rights issues.
 
Only one year out of college, Jessica now serves on the staff of Rural Organizing Project in Oregon after serving as a volunteer on the Board of Directors for 5 years. Her international perspective on local organizing can serve as a model for others struggling to help their communites cope with the perils of corporate-dominated globalization.


Jessica was our guest on SFPI Radio on Saturday October 20. Please listen and share this great discussion about how we can work locally, nationally and internationally at once to build a united international front against fascism and war at the grassroots level.

SFPI Radio is the international talk show designed to allow those struggling for social justice around the world to talk to each other about how we can support efforts to promote justice, democracy and peace in every nation.
