This week I spoke with DC Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (pictured above) on why she’s fighting to make DC a state. Public opinion researcher Tresa Undem shared how attitudes about race, gender, and power influenced voters in 2020. Retired Major General Linda Singh of the National Guard talked about how the insurrection on January 6th highlighted the need to focus on domestic terrorism, and discussed the role of law enforcement in social-justice protests. On Sippin’ the Political Tea, contributors Errin Haines of the 19th and Jess Morales Rocketto of the National Domestic Workers Alliance joined me in taking stock of the first 100 days of the Biden-Harris administration.
