In this interview with Suzi Weismann KPFK 90.7FM, Rob Wallace, evolutionary epidemiologist, Graham Christensen, 5th generation family farmer and founder of GC Resolve, and Meleiza Figueroa, geographer and eco-researcher/activist come together to discuss how they’re working on ways communities can create mutual aid efforts — in the absence of government response – that can be extended as we head into a second, more extended lockdown.
