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

On this week’s episode, I talked with Nse Ufot of the New Georgia Project about the power of organizing the vote. Air Force Sergeant Tamika Hamilton shared with me about what inspired her to run in California, and Varshini Prakash of the Sunrise Movement connected racial inequity and the climate crisis. Saru Jayaraman of One Fair Wage explained the pandemic’s effect on service workers.  Alejandra Gomez of Living United for Change in Arizona reflects on organizing efforts in the election. Plus, how Dr. Camilla Pang explains the average human’s behavior.

And this week, I’m asking the Our Body Politic community a new question: How are you coping with the pandemic — emotionally or in any other ways? To let us know, you can write to us via this form or call us at 929-353-7006 and leave a voicemail. If you want us to use your voice on-air, be sure and say “You have my permission to air this.”
