Life and Transition of Community Organizing w/ Steve Moon

(S4, EP 11) Longtime Korean-American community organizer & activist Steve Moon joined me for this week's episode.  For years, Steve has been cultivating Asian / Black and Brown community solidarity on issues with immigration, police brutality, gentrification, among others in Chicago.  He speaks about his experiences in community organizing and youth development, and how he has since transitioned since being a father.  He also spoke about his experience mentoring the late Asian-American hip hop artist John Vietnam Nguyen who died in a drowning accident in 2012 at the age of 19, and what his legacy has meant to the Vietnamese / Asian American community in Chicago since then.  Check out more on this episode!
