Grassroots Organizer Jeana Brown shares her experience, strength, and hope as she shares intergenerational stories of her Great Grandfather, and his son her Grandfather; one organized with Mother Jones on Cabin Creek and one organized and fought for wage increases and brought the first health coverage in the state of West Virginia as a benefit for workers as an IBEW AFL-CIO #178 Business Agent in Cabin Creek for many years. Listen to the wisdom of three generations as they have, as a family, fought for the well being of others. Team Rural is Jeana Brown's tribute to all that has transpired.
