The Constructing Change podcast returns!

The Constructing Change podcast has returned!  

The Constructing Change Podcast is an extension of the Lynn Williams Activist Toolkit -- a collaborative effort devoted to providing how -- ­to guides, reports, workshops and a smattering of other resources geared to get you involved.

On today's program -- a brief conversation with Activist Toolkit producer Maya Bhullar, looking back at 2015 and what needs to be done to continue to undo the damage of the Harper regime.  

And in case you're wondering who the heck Lynn Williams is -- Activist, organizer and labour leader Lynn Williams was committed to social justice, inspiring generations of United Steelworker activists. Though he passed away on May 4, 2015 (right after May Day), his spirit lives on.  This podcast is dedicated to the spirit of change and fairness Lynn Williams inspired in so many communities.

Read more about Lynn Williams here and please check out the Toolkit’s blog and user guide for more information.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
