Episode #19 The Power of Citizenship


Listens: 0



We examine the idea of citizenship and the power that comes with it. Here in North America, and across the Western world, we don’t put stringent definitions or limitations on what constitutes citizenship. Some simply define citizenship as voting while others would argue that even that is too limiting. Everyone we spoke with for this podcast, agreed on though was that it’s through citizenship that we create power, especially political power. Yet, as a whole we’ve become power illiterate. Featuring interview with Citizen Universtiy founder Eric Liu, the Ryerson Leadership Lab's Karim Bardeesy, and MPI Executive Director Jamison Steeve. Music featured: Wake - "Steppin" Jahzzar - "The Last Ones" Jahzzar - "Siesta"
