Description

Greear Webb is a rising sophomore in the Morehead-Cain program at UNC-Chapel Hill. A year ago he graduated from Sanderson High School and at that time he had already organized a Town Hall on gun violence in the wake of the Parkland, Florida School school shooting. This led to the founding of his organization YAP! (Young Americans Protest).

Now, in addition to continuing his studies online while preparing for an amended fall college schedule, he's using those same skills and contacts he began in high school to be one of the leading voices of the recent and continuing protests in downtown Raleigh that began the week of George Floyd's killing in Minneapolis. He has helped lead Raleigh Demands Justice, one of several groups helping to demonstrated in and around downtown.

We talked to Greear about being a college kid and being an activist and community leader all at the same time.

Special thanks to Papa Murphy's Take N Bake Pizza of Raleigh--who has a great deal for Father's Day, promo code is in the episode--and Steele Residential, who has graciously donated their ad time during the pandemic to local non-profits, this episode they're supporting The Dix Park Conservancy.
