Making Contact

Making Contact – Lessons from Latin America

For decades, people have said the United States has treated Latin America as a project for exploit and economic expansion. Even do-gooders see the global south as deserving of unilateral help or charity.  But social change activists say the tables have turned.  On this edition, we'll hear from experts who say – especially in times of crisis – there's a lot to learn from social movements in Latin America.

Featuring:

Marina Sitrin, author and attorney; Ben Dangl, Burlington College in Vermont professor; Mario Murillo, author & Hofstra University professor; Oscar Estrada, Honduran filmmaker & 2010 NarcoNews School of Authentic Journalism participant.
