    'They're so complacent.' What these youth activists say about grown-ups

    When a group of K-12 students confronted Senator Dianne Feinstein for not supporting the Green New Deal, she put up her dukes. "I've been doing this for thirty years," Senator Feinstein said. "I know what I'm doing. You come in here and say, it's my way or the highway. I don't respond to that." Local youth activists Lukas Illa and Grace Lambert weren't surprised by this reaction, and sat down with RadioActive's Jadenne Radoc Cabahug to share their experiences.

    Why does it matter where I'm 'really' from?

    People often find ways to identify with and exclude others. We categorize ourselves by using gender, class, race and even age to connect with people like ourselves or separate ourselves from others. As a society, why are we more comfortable questioning our sexuality than our nationality and ethnicity?

What inspired these students to get involved in one of the nation’s most controversial policy debates, and what keeps them going?
