Are you passionate about social justice? If you have an interest or background in journalism, audio production, or storytelling, we want you!

Since 1964, we have relied on activists, donors, and volunteers to help us defend the rights of hundreds of thousands of individuals across the country. 
Our volunteer-led podcast will align with the history and goals of CCLA in an effort to raise awareness and educate on relevant Charter-related issues. Each episode will focus on a separate issue, bringing on a guest who is advocating for meaningful change or experiencing injustices themselves.
