Rising Up With Sonali

Movement To Defund DAPL Sees Success

The Army Corps of Engineers has approved the Dakota Access pipeline even as Seattle’s City Council votes to divest its monies from one of the pipeline’s funders, Wells Fargo. We’ll speak with indigenous activist Matt Remle. And, an artist who made a name for himself during the George W. Bush administration, has found plenty to paint about in the age of Donald Trump. Mark Bryan will join us to discuss his powerful and surreal works of political art. Plus, as activists struggle to regroup in the face of the Trump Administration, we’ll turn to Bethany Amborn, co-founder of the newly formed organization, Together We Will USA.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
