In The Accidental Activist podcast, we hear from cultural icons on the moment they decided to get involved with social movements ranging from gun control to racial equity. For ex-CNN Anchor and acclaimed journalist Isha Sesay, being surrounded by news of activism was the norm. But becoming an activist herself was never a role she envisioned until being at the center of the #BringBackOurGirls Movement. Isha speaks with celebrities and entertainers like Jesse Williams, Margaret Cho, and Alyssa Milano to uncover the moment they decided to step into the activist ring. At the center of it all, their conversations illuminate a core truth of the human condition: the desire to make a difference in the world.

Check out episode 2, which drops tomorrow, April 1, and features our very own Alyssa Milano! This time Alyssa will be talking about gun violence prevention, which is a great reminder that we're also hosting a virtual town hall on April 21, 4-5 pm ET focused on gender-based gun violence. You won't want to miss it!
