Beth Fukumoto & Jess Northend

In this week’s episode, Jess and Beth explore what it takes to build social movements and the lessons we can learn from Congressman John Lewis - one of the giants of the struggle for civil rights in the U.S., who passed away on 17 July.
 
Later in the episode they talk to Professor Erica Chenoweth about why non-violent resistance is the most effective form of protest, and how history suggests it can take just 3.5% of a population to create political change.
