We'll speak with former soldier Maggie Martin, an organizer with Iraq Veterans Against the War's campaign Operation Recovery.

Joe Clement interviews John Langly of the Red and Black cafe, an all-vegan cafe that's cooperatively owned by its worker as well as collectively managed. They talk about this radical approach to managing an organization, the intersection between community and workplace organizing they cultivate, the diverse and community-oriented events they host, and their choice to serve low-income and otherwise marginalized communities. John mentions at one point the Red and Black's web-page and the form to request use of the space for an event.
