POLITICS OFF THE CUFF

(formerly known as From The Grass To The Top)

A critical and critically optimistic show that unapologetically raises the fist on national and international politics in a time of greed, polarization, oppression and bad orange skin tans.

Cliff Cawthon is a community organizer, journalist and activist who has made his home in the Rainier Valley. He's worked with local Unions, community organizations, and blogs. He's a traveler with a tendency to be in the middle of struggles from Cuba to Cairo, all of which he jumped into during and after obtaining his M.A. in Human Rights at the prestigious University of Manchester in the United Kingdom.
