Many retirees enjoy the rest and relaxation that eluded them during their working years. But for some, retirement means opportunities to affect positive change in their communities. On this edition, we profile three elders who became activists in the second half of their lives in southern West Virginia, Boston, Massachusetts and Oakland, California.

 

Featuring:

Bo Webb,  Mountain Justice Co-Founder; Hubie Jones, Boston Children’s Chorus Founder; Margaret Gordon, West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project Co-Founder and Co-Director.
