Making Action Happen

Making Action Happen

Making Action Happen is a show about the Action22 members and communities. The show introduces you to Colorado community leaders, elected officials, and individuals to gain perspective on their ideas and experiences. While Action22 works on public policy from the rural space, we explore which perspectives are driven by political party lines and which ones are not. Specifically, we focus on and discuss topics that have ongoing and immediate impact on our communities, and by extension other communities like ours. The purpose is to help you find insight and solutions relevant to what you are working on, regardless of where you are in the world. Making Action Happen is broadcast live every Thursday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel.... Show More
