You don’t need to run for office - or rely on anyone in one - to have an impact on people’s lives. Hear from three people who are making seismic changes in their communities from the ground up: Rachel Sumekh, founder of Swipe Out Hunger, which partners with college campuses to address student hunger; Benji Backer, founder of the American Conservation Coalition, which engages fellow Republicans to act on climate change; and Lily Rocha, the Midwest regional director of Young Invincibles, dedicated to increasing economic empowerment.

Moderated by former IOP Pritzker Fellow and former MoveOn executive director Anna Galland.
