Omar Wasow talks to environmental justice advocate Majora Carter, media executive and charter school founder Kay Madati and Newark, NJ Mayor Cory Booker to discuss the personal motivation behind their dedication and commitment to protecting vulnerable communities. This hour reveals how these leaders are using their influence to revitalize urban communities and advocate for the underserved. Each of them has refused to accept the status quo and taken the lead in improving the quality of life for others by transforming their communities from the ground up.
