Interview with Liz Ryan Murray, policy director at National People's Action and member of The New Bottom Line campaign, conducted by Scott Harris

Interview with Emily Wurth, water program director of Food & Water Watch, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

Interview with Natalie Foster, CEO of Rebuild the American Dream campaign, conducted by Scott Harris
