Through his work building movements for peace, immigrant rights, black lives, and the Occupy movement, Shahid dedicated his career to public service long before running for public office. An early advocate for marriage equality for same-sex couples and a prolific organizer in the movement to end warrantless surveillance, Shahid most recently built a national grassroots network for the Electronic Frontier Foundation as the organization’s Director of Grassroots Advocacy. He has been building social movements and speaking truth to power for two decades and graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003. In addition to LGBTQ rights, privacy, and the right to encryption, Shahid’s work has advanced immigrant rights, campaign finance reform, government transparency, international human rights, and police accountability. His writing has explored issues from the right-wing attack on reproductive freedom to the erosion of voting rights, and from effective counter-terrorism strategies to counter-cultural activism leveraging art & culture.   WEBSITE | www.shahidforchange.us INSTAGRAM | http://www.instagram.com/shahidforchange   Keep Up With Sabrina Riccio INSTAGRAM | https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.instagram.com%2Fsabrinariccio (www.instagram.com/sabrinariccio) || http://www.instagram.com/sovereignsocietypodcast (www.instagram.com/sovereignsocietypodcast) WEBSITE | www.sabrinariccio.com Join the Sovereign Society Facebook Group here | bit.ly/TheSovereignSociety Shamanessa Goddessa Shoppe | https://sabrinariccio.com/shop/ Love this podcast?

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
