Coming up is the first episode of a new podcast being played by radio stations across the state called, “Anyone Can Be an Organizer” by the Rural Organizing Project. Here at KBOO we are excited to share this with all of our listeners because of how import

Anyone Can Be An Organizer features Brenda Flores with Raíces in Stanfield, Umatilla County, Juan Navarro with Here to Stay in the mid-Willamette Valley, and Monica Pearson with Indivisible North Coast Oregon in Astoria, Clatsop County. We talked with each of them about their work for migrant justice, how they first started organizing, and what motivates them to keep going. This episode is grounded in our belief that no matter who you are or where you live, anyone can be an organizer. It features music by The Road Sodas, who are also rural Oregonians!
