Leon Robinson and De’Wayne Drummond are Philly community organizers on a mission to empower grassroots organizers with the skills and tools they need to succeed. In each episode of Iron Sharpens Iron, Leon and De’Wayne will interview grassroots organizers. You’ll hear what they’re doing to change the status quo and what they’ve learned in the process.
We believe that, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Our podcast hopes to spread information and tools from one neighborhood to another and become sharper with every conversation!
Cass Green of New Kensington CDC and Somaly Osteen of SEAMAAC join Leon and De’Wayne for a very frank conversation on race and community organizing. This conversation took place as part of PACDC’s Forward Equitable Development Conference in 2021.
