This week Generation whY is joined a third time by Nomiki Konst. Andrew and Nomiki will discuss Nomiki's new project, The Accountability Project

The Accountability Project is an organization focused on investigating misconduct in politics and the private sector and holding leaders accountable for their egregious actions. They believe that politicians and CEOs have a duty to act ethically. The  Accountability Project advances its mission using a combination of whistle blowing, investigative research and public awareness campaigns to hold public leaders accountable. America cannot wait for a story to break or a crisis to form for people to become aware of the intolerable behavior by leaders who are making decisions on behalf of the public. The Accountability Project dedicates its resources to informing the public of these bad actors before the crisis hits or story breaks at politically convenient times. Everyone should believe that the fewer bad actors in leadership positions, the healthier the political and business culture become - allowing qualified, ethical leaders to rise up.

Nomiki Konst is a former 2012 Congressional candidate for Arizona's second district. She's an advocate for Government 2.0, civil discourse, millennial politics and equal representation. She is the founder and former Executive Director of Alliance Hollywood, an organization dedicated to training members of the entertainment industry on how to speak civilly about politics. She also helps organizations and companies bridge the divide between Millennials and Baby Boomers and regularly speaks about the new economy being forged by Millennials. Nomiki is active in youth politics as an At-Large member of the DNC Youth Council, former national co-chair of Gen44, New Leaders Council, Running Start and Junior Statesmen. She is also a Partner with the Truman National Security Project.

This week Generation whY is joined by delegates from IMatter Youth Movement, Mina Arasteh and Grant and Garrett Serrels. IMatter Youth recently started working with the non-profit group, Our Childrens Trust, and pro-bono attorneys around the country. They've sued the federal and state governments of the United States to secure climate recovery plans that will restore the balance of Earth's climate systems. ​ The plaintiffs are asking the judges to rule that the atmosphere is a common resource, a public trust, shared by all, and hold the government to its responsibility to protect it for all generations.

Mina Arasteh is an 18 year old from Bay Area, California, and an intern with Kids vs Global Warming/iMatter. Mina coordinates the iMatter Climate Change Council of Youth and has been a member of the Council since 2011. She just finished her freshman year at UC Davis majoring in Environmental Policy Analysis and Planning. Mina has led two youth empowerment marches in San Francisco, drafted a Green Purchasing section of her town's climate action plan, and worked with local city governments on a myriad of environmental actions, ranging from creek pollution, to pesticide management, to divestment from fossil fuel companies. She is a passionate advocate for a sustainable future.

Grant and Garrett Serrels are 18 year old twins from Harrisonburg, VA, leaders with Kids vs Global Warming/iMatter on the iMatter Climate Change Council of Youth. Garrett and Grant are plaintiffs on the federal atmospheric trust lawsuit against five government agencies, asking for a comprehensive and coordinated climate recovery plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by the amount scientists say is necessary to avert disaster. They have led marches and rallies, spoken at their city council, given presentations at schools, met with members of Congress, and walked the C&O Canal Trail from Harper's Ferry to Washington, D.C. as part of the Walk for our Grandchildren last Summer.

This week Generation whY talks with Walk the Moon's lead singer, Nicholas Petricca.  Nicholas Petricca is the lead vocals, Keys, Synthesizer, and Bass Drum.  Nicholas wrote the song "Anna Sun", which was named the song of the summer in a 2011 Esquire article "30 Summer Songs Every Man Should Listen To". Written by Petricca and New York singer/songwriter Nick Lerangis towards the end of their college career, the song is named after their professor from Kenyon College and is meant to symbolize youth. "It's about college, about maintaining that little bit of being a kid," Petricca said. "Don't be afraid to play."

Walk the Moon is an indie rock band based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Lead singer Nicholas Petricca started the band in 2008 and went through several member changes before finally coming together with current members, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman, and Eli Maiman sometime in 2010. The band derives their name from the song "Walking on the Moon" by The Police. The group independently released their debut album, i want! i want!, in November 2010, receiving airplay for the track "Anna Sun". In February 2011, Walk the Moon signed with Mick Management. They signed to RCA Records and released their first official album, Walk the Moon in June 2012. Their self-titled debut is composed of many of their original tracks from i want! i want! in addition to new tracks that were written specifically for the album and were meant to reflect the kind of energy the band produced in their live shows.

Their mission as students living in a democracy is to promote the cause of justice and speak out against oppression and occupation. Their goal is to raise awareness about this issue and provide students with alternative resources of information than the mainstream media. SJP will also work to provide a comfortable environment where students and faculty can discuss and debate their diverse views on the various aspects of Palestinian politics and society. They do not support violence in the region and will highlight the Palestinians; non-violent efforts for peace. SJP supports and engages in the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) campaign and believe this it is the fundamental course of action necessary for a just peace. They hope that one day Palestinians will be free from occupation and will be able to determine their own fate as an independent nation living peacefully with its neighbors.

This week Generation whY answers the first question in Human History, "can Milk Duds be made healthy"? Two weeks ago I challenged Fitness Superhero Miss Barbella, aka Tanell Pretorius, that she could not make God's chosen food, Milk Duds, healthy. Since Andrew Tint isn't the end all be all of judging chocolate, we luckily got a man who was, Noah Lion, of Noah's Rockin Raw ChocolateTune in live to find out if Milk Duds are going to be replaced.

Originally from South Africa, Tanell Pretorius moved to London, in the United Kingdom, at the age of 19 to pursue a career in modeling. She worked as a fashion and sports model for seven years and had agents in London, Milan, Hamburg and Cape Town. She was featured in numerous TV commercials from Sony Playstation to Veet Wax. In 2011 she moved to Fairfield, Iowa, to complete an undergraduate degree in Media and Communications at Maharishi University of Management. She has since moved her focus to writing, personal training, and Ayurvedic consultant practice. Her passions are self-development and sharing her knowledge and experience of health and wellness with others. She also writes currently for IOWA SOURCE.

Noah Lion is the Founder and Creative Director of Noah's Rock'n Raw Chocolates! Noah started making Chocolate at the age of 8, and spent his childhood building eco-friendly houses before becoming a full time Raw Chocolatier. When Noah realized how terrible processed sugar is he began making his own raw desserts, quickly founding that after adding all his favorite ingredients together everyone seemed to love his chocolate almost more than he did. From there he started serving chocolate at local markets, stores, and created the online store NoahsRocknRawChocolates.com Noah now lives in Manhattan where he provide Raw Chocolate for thousands of chocolate lovers across the nation.
