Guest Host: 
Braeden Lentz, Development Manager, Urban Justice Center 
Maurice Mitchell, Coordinator, New York Civic Engagement Table

Segments: 

1. Black Community Organizing: Is there such a thing? Does community organizing look differently among in black neighborhoods than it does in white ones? What are the challenges for anyone organizing in black neighborhoods and for black organizers organizing in any neighborhood?

2. Fundraising and the Non-profit industrial complex: What does real movement sustainability look like? Does foundation grant making support or undermine social justice organizing and community self-determination? I hope this answers any questions you may have.

3. "Tell em why you mad" Roundup

Third Rail Eps 5: Social Justice. You about this life?

Guest Host: 
Mark Winston Griffith, Executive Director, Brooklyn Movement Center

Segments: 

1. Music that changed me: Music is a huge part of how we come to understand ourselves and the world around us. On this segment, we talk about the artists and songs that shaped our political identities in our formative years and beyond.

2. Why a co-op?: From co-op apartments, to the Little Maroons (a childcare cooperative), to the Central Brooklyn Federal Credit Union effort back in the 90’s, community members coming together to support their needs is not a foreign concept in Central Brooklyn. But is there an inherent value in a "cooperative" way of life?
