Your Call: Tim DeChristopher's peaceful uprising

Jan 19, 2016

On the January 19th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with environmental justice activist Tim De Christopher.

In 2011, DeChristopher was sentenced to two years in jail for outbidding oil companies during an auction to lease oil and gas drilling rights on public lands. Since then, he says that the climate movement has seen a dramatic increase of civil disobedience.  The climate movement is building a new kind of power. What changes are you seeing? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
