Episode # 14 Monna Wong

This week I am thrilled to have my friend and mentor Monna Wong on the show. Currently living in San Francisco with roots in New York, I met Monna when she was the Regional Field Director for marriage equality in Maine in 2012. Running the Portland field operation she grew the team to where by election day there were over 2,000 volunteers that walked through the Portland office alone in the final two weeks of the campaign. She shares with us some of her favorite moments, biggest struggles, and inspirations that keep her in the work. She hooked me into organizing and I continue to learn from Monna with virtually every interaction we have and this interview is no exception.

Episode #12 - Sass

Sass shares a powerful story of how a direct action protesting trains transporting fracked oil through their small Maine town forever changed the direction of their life. Now as an organizer for Resources for Organizing Social Change (ROSC) they share the skills they have learned over the years. I should note that this is a skype call I had with Sass last winter so when they discuss different events the timing was much earlier in the year than when this is landing in your inbox.
