A Conversation with Amy Goodman and Kenneth Kimmell
Amy Goodman has built a career on covering movements that highlight solutions and catalyze change. She has explored how grassroots activism and general muckraking can give a voice to those otherwise ignored. Goodman does not shy away from difficult issues and is not afraid to take on powerful industries when bringing a story to the public.
As the president of Union for Concerned Scientists (UCS), Kenneth Kimmell has the same tenacity as Goodman in terms of getting to the bottom of things. Under Kimmell’s leadership, UCS has led the charge in exposing the relationship between oil companies, climate change and climate denial.
Join us for a conversation about what it’s like to go up against one of the most powerful industries in the world in and convince people they have been lied to.
