What makes a movement go viral? Not since the 1960s have we seen the kind of mass civic engagement we are witnessing in the United States today. Hear from the leaders of the most powerful, recent civic movements about social, racial, economic and gender justice and how they turned moments into movements and how every one of us can make a direct impact in our own lives. Brittany Ferrell, Breanne Butler
Meena Harris, Madame Gandhi
