Music by SHEL, Stronger Than My Fears – hear them live at our Closing Night Concert.

In this episode we talk with athlete, mental health counselor, activist, entrepreneur, adventurer and speaker, Alison Desir. She is also the inspiring founder of Harlem Run and the grassroots movement, Run4AllWomen that recently launched the Midterm Run, a national grassroots progressive initiative to raise money and awareness of candidates running to flip Congress by running (or walking) 2018 miles.

 

Listen in as Alison talks about her personal journey and her big vision for what is possible when likeminded people and organizations work together to create the world we want to live in.

 

As a proud partner of the Midterm Run, we invite you to join us on Thursday, September 20 for a Voter Registration Drive + 4K Run/Walk on the San Francisco leg of the run. Sign up here.

 

Alison joined us for the West Coast premiere of Run4AllWomen and was a panelist on #EverydayActivism at our second annual festival in September 2017.
