I love the stories behind what drives people to activism.
I don't think any of us are "born" activists... it's the events of our lives that change us, that shape us... that demand something more of us than perhaps we thought we'd be comfortable with.
The Save Trestles story is really the sum of many, smaller stories. At the center of this decade-long campaign is people like Jerry Collamer. In fact I'd argue that at the center IS Jerry Collamer. I sat down with Jerry on a bluff overlooking the last clean watershed in Southern California. I'm humbled to be near people like Jerry because of what they've done with their lives.
Jerry has a legacy... and it's beautiful. Listen in.
