Protest is Patriotic: David Fenton & Bill Lichtenstein
On the eve of the November midterm elections, join two lifelong social change activists for a conversation about how to confront climate change, social injustice, war, violence, and authoritarianism.
What the relationship is between activism and electoral politics? How can we draw on the lessons of grassroots activism over the last 50 years to tackle the enormous challenges of our time?

DAVID FENTON, named “one of the 100 most influential PR people” by PR Week and “the Robin Hood of public relations” by The National Journal, founded Fenton in 1982 to create communications campaigns for the environment, public health and human rights. For over four decades he has pioneered the use of PR, social media and advertising techniques for social change.

BILL LICHTENSTEIN is a journalist and documentary producer. Winner of more than sixty major journalism awards, he has written for publications including the New York Times, the Nation, the Village Voice, and the Boston Globe, and produced and directed the feature-length documentary, WBCN and the American Revolution. He worked at WBCN from 1971 to 1977, beginning as a teenage volunteer on the station’s “Listener Line.”
