The Lowdown is a current affairs audio series hosted by Katherine DeClerq and Michelle LePage. Each week, they break down a big issue to explain why it’s important to students and youth.

This week they look at activism on university campuses and what you should know before you head to Queen’s Park with a picket sign.

Winnie Ng, the CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy, joins us to discuss the different ways students can get involved in social action.
