Activist-in-Progress

By Triton's VOICE
A podcast for the civically challenged hosted by Divya Bhatia, Rey Lautenschlager, Olivia Michael, and Alexis Plazola. To be civically challenged means that you may want to get involved in issues but don't quite know how, or you might think there will always be someone better equipped out there to fight. This podcast is creating a community of activists who support each other in this fight as we are a work-in-progress, understanding activism—not as an end goal—as a journey.

Protest in a Pandemic | Episode 2
In this episode of Activist-in-Progress with ACLU attorney Emerson Sykes, we dive into how our first amendment rights are being affected by the novel COVID-19 pandemic. From university campus hate speech to protests that have continued and adapted during this pandemic, the civil rights lawyer shares his perspective on how to go about protecting our first amendment rights. Recording this episode left us feeling inspired by our right to free speech and protest, so if you've ever felt bogged down by the establishment—this one's for you!

Madam President | Episode 1
On our first official episode of Activist-in-Progress, we had the pleasure of speaking with UC San Diego's Associated Students President Eleanor Grudin. We discuss the gap between "normal" students and student government, how her role as president impacts her ability to be an activist, and how UC San Diego's student government and administrators are working to support their students during this pandemic. We were moved by Eleanor's empathy and passion for her constituents and are grateful to have her as our undergraduate advocate. Enjoy!  *If you're interested in lobbying as we mentioned in the podcast, tune into our D.C. lobbying experience here: https://shows.acast.com/triton-tools-tidbits/episodes/lobbying-101-how-to-network-for-a-cause CONNECT WITH US!
