Pressing Pause: Our Body Politic is on hiatus.     |     Click here to learn more.    

This week, OBP Presents features the podcast ‘As She Rises’. Hosted by Grace Lynch, ‘As She Rises’ combines locally-written poetry with expert interviews to ground listeners and contextualize the monumental impacts of climate change in locations across the globe. In Louisiana, poet Jerika Marchan and activist Colette Pichon Battle describe living through Hurricane Katrina and fighting for climate justice. U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo and activist Casey Camp-Horinek explore Indigenous Sovereignty and man-made earthquakes in Oklahoma. And on our weekly roundtable Sippin’ the Political Tea, I am joined by Errin Haines of the 19th and OBP legal analyst, Georgetown Law Professor Tiffany Jeffers, to break down what’s happening in Georgia and voting rights; plus a discussion about bodily autonomy.
