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

This week on Our Body Politic, I spoke with Senator Tammy Duckworth about serving in the military, becoming a mother, and advocating for safe and equitable environments for veterans. Washington insider Stephanie Valencia broke down the so-called Latino vote, and challenged the major parties to show up beyond an election year. I talked to our finance contributor Ruth Umoh about the Biden Plan for Black America, and the significance and optics of Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris for women of color. Futurists Sharon Chang and Kamal Sinclair of The Guild of Future Architects led us through imaging a future of liberation for women of color. Ajón Crump shared how she’s spending her time in lockdown by fundraising for and sending free sneakers to nurses on the frontline of the pandemic. And journalist S. Mitra Kalita and I got real on the role of journalists in a pandemic.

And now I want to hear from you! Imagine if women of color trusted the society around them and felt truly liberated. What would you do if you felt truly liberated and financially secure? Let us know by writing to us here or calling us at 929-353-7006 and leaving a voicemail.
