Why cycle across the country? Doug Pagitt and Dan Deitrich discuss the effectiveness of "active activism" and are joined later in the show by Rickey Gates, who ran across the continental US after Trump won the 2016 election. You can find his book, Cross Country: a 3,700 mile Run to Explore Unseen America here. Watch the documentary from his 5-month run, Transamericana, for free here.
Doug Pagitt is the Executive Director and one of the founders of Vote Common Good. He is also a pastor, author, and social activist. @pagitt
