06/25/14Kevin Zelko: on the intersection of soccer and activism

I’ve known Kevin Zelko for almost twenty years and in that time he is one of the few people who again and again surprises me with his activism. He is an innovator in the truest sense of the word, a community organizer, and for the people he supports, a changer of worlds. Kevin

I sat down this week with Kevin to talk about his love for soccer, the formation of the Gorilla FC support club and how they are involved in the community, his innovative work as an early adopter of Twitter, and his recent crowd funding campaign to support kids which garnered national media interest.

Kevin keeps us thinking about how to use resources available to us in new ways to bring about results.

Kevin is up for a teaching award that could lead to even more national press. To vote for him (voting ends 6/29/2014) listen to our interview and then see the link below.

The interview is less than a half an hour long, and worth every minute. LISTEN HERE (27 minutes, 57 seconds)
