Rinku Sen Named an UTNE Visionary

By Jonathan Adams Oct 30, 2008

Rinku Sen is one of 50 activists, artists, scientists, transcendentalism, and non-conformists who made Utne Reader’s list of visionaries, working in social justice and community organization, transforming technology and the world. Racewire contributor and executive director of the Ruckus Society, Adrienne Maree Brown, also made the list for her leadership and passion in the movement.

Whether she’s speaking and singing during the opening plenary of a conference or leading workshops for eighth-graders in Detroit, Brown captivates audiences with her call for freedom and direct action—mobilizing folks with the sort of fiery, fearless passion from which generational leaders are born. “

Others like Majora Carter, Favianna Rodriguez, and Ramón Ramírez were also spotlighted for their world-changing work. Click here to find out who else made the list.
