Radical Love Fuels Youth Activists

Check out the Table Underground, a new podcast platform hosted by Tagan Engel, that focuses on digging deep into stories of food, race, radical love, and creative social justice.  In this podcast episode, Tagan interviews Salwa Abdussabur, Cowiya Arouna and Jeremy Cajigas, three youth organizers that worked with City Wide Youth Coalition in New Haven, CT to lead a solidarity march with hundreds of people on November 11, 2016 following the election of Donald Trump. When confronted by two Trump supporters in the crowd at this rally yelling “Make America Great” and “Trump, Trump,” Cowiya responded without hesitation, megaphone in hand, “We love you, we love you, we love you”, the crowd followed her lead, and the rest of the rally channeled the anger and concern of the crowd through the positivity and message of radical love and fierce solidarity presented by these youth leaders and their peers.
