Global Activism: Clowning around in Mexico

In this week’s edition of Global Activism, we meet a woman who is making the world a better place through smiles and laughter. Karen Hoyer has been a professional mime, clown, and teacher for decades. She recently took her performance skills to Chihuahua, Mexico, with a little help from a grant from the U.S. State Department. Hoyer joins us to talk about her trip. (Photo: Javier Lopez)
