Eco-activist Tim DeChristopher

Apr 28, 2013

Environmental activist Tim DeChristopher was recently released after serving a two-year prison term for an infamous act of civil disobedience. DeChristopher says that during his sentence he read and exercised a lot. He also missed the rise and decline of the Occupy protests. “The biggest social movement of lifetime happened and I missed it,” DeChristopher has said. A free man now, he plans to attend Harvard Divinity School in the fall. DeChristopher joins us Monday to discuss his evolution as an activist and how it connects to his spiritual path.


Tim DeChristopher is an environmental activist and the co-founder of the environmental group Peaceful Uprising.
