ReGeneration Nation

By Transition US

Political dysfunction, rampant inequities, and extractive economies prevent us from living in a regenerative reciprocity relationship with one another and all living beings. What is there to do?
What if we lean into our collective imagination and consciousness to envision a world that centers radical love and transformative justice?
The ReGeneration Nation podcast explores an alternative reality now grounded on care and justice through stories, interviews, and conversations with front-line communities and grassroots organizations.

Reimagine Higher Education with Ruben Elias Canedo

Reimagine Higher Education with Ruben Elias Canedo

In this second episode, join Jess and Elvia as they interview Ruben Elias Canedo, director of strategic equity initiatives at the University of California, Berkeley. Ruben shares their experiences growing up with a disability, their advice for youths organizing for a better world, and how they reimage the UC system and higher education's responsibility in building a care infrastructure across California.   

More about Ruben: "Growing up in a mixed status and binational family with a disabled body introduced me at an early age to harm, trauma, injustice, and oppression. Most importantly, it taught me how brilliant, resilient, loving, and transformative our family and community relationships are. I survived and am here today because of family and community. Growing up, everyone would take care of each other to make sure folx had food, shelter, and community. I believe in a world that will learn and heal beyond its current white supremacy, capitalism, patriarchy, and ableism. The way I can contribute to that direction is through our basic needs efforts. I'm humbled and privileged to share this community journey of belonging and justice."
