Sunstorm Banner Season 2 (Pink)

Welcome to Sunstorm, where we get real about what’s happening in the world and what we’re doing about it. Because we are the light in the storm.

Sunstorm is an audio salon hosted by two of America’s leading organizers, Alicia Garza and Ai-jen Poo, where they talk to their friends and sheroes about how women stay powerful and joyful amidst the chaos of life in America today.

Season 2 is all about finding your lane. Times are wild and many of us can feel disoriented as the pendulum swings in these moments - so how do we find a center from which we can move? This season, we’re figuring out what each one of us can do, and how we can make the most impact within the context of our lives.

Sunstorm is a project of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, in collaboration with Participant.


This Week's Episode

Ep. 1: Leaving It All On The Field with Megan Rapinoe

Megan Rapinoe decided to expand her lane beyond the soccer field that made her famous — and a world champion. Now, inspired by activists like Colin Kaepernick and the Ferguson protesters, she’s using her platform to champion causes like equal pay for women, racial justice, and civic engagement. Megan opens up about difficult conversations with relatives whose political beliefs discount her own humanity, and explains how anyone—yes, anyone!—can participate in activism. Plus: Why it’s so important to celebrate the journey as we fight for big wins.

You can find Megan on Instagram here and Twitter here.
