Here’s a sneak peak of a segment that will air on Thursday. We take you out to the streets of Oakland after the grand jury decided not to indict officer Darren  Wilson. APEXer Ellen Choy recorded this powerful interview with Movement Strategy Center’s Innovation Fellow Navina Khanna and APEXer Salima Hamarani created the beautiful mix. Why is it important for API people to be out in support of Michael Brown? As Navina says, “We only win if we’re all in this together.”
