10/28/17Punk Rock comes to Grinnell College in Iowa!

The best of times at Grinnell College in Iowa with vegan straightedge sociology professor Ross Haenfler who put together two full days of speaking and events. Day one had us team teaching sociology classes together about punk/hardcore history and how punk and straightedge relate to larger social issues. Later in the day he arranged a campus-wide speaking event for my “Changing the World Without Having a Clue” presentation.

On the second day we hung out on the couch with his cats and talked for three and a half hours about the wider sociological implications of punk and straightedge for a new book he is working on, and then he arranged for us to meet at night with the campus Intersectional Vegan Group to talk about how veganism connects to other forms of oppression. Great students and even better ideas circulating about how to tie together all sorts of different initiatives.

If you ever go back to college make sure you go to Grinnell and have Ross be your professor. He plays Minor Threat in class.
