Definitely, you know state's attorney brave boy our fathers I mean you know it's their fault. So. I was born in. My Dad gave me my name Attica I'm named after the prison in upstate New York born a few months after the uprisings there in. So I didn't have a choice Ashanti really didn't in. So early on I got involved in a right out of college classmates run for city also in Knoxville Tennessee because I went away to ABC you is well, it's our on his campaign and then my full time job was at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and director was a county commissioner who became the first woman mayor of Maciel Tennessee and I came back home and I was involved with organized Labor at jobs with justice in ended up having. To me that I needed to run for office in. So because my friends mostly black and Brown women encouraged me to run for office. That's how I. Got Involved I love it in Y'all Attica is my emerge sister she went through emerged Kentucky and I remember the first time. I. Got to email her for something and I was so excited because I finally get to work with Atacan. Something is your pie vaccine my email she said, hey, queen and I almost died unlike y'all Attica call me queen because that's the way I, feel about her so you are just so fabulous and I wanNA start with having. US. Talk about retailers case because I think there's so much here particularly with you wrap Scott you just had an op Ed in the Washington Post after the verdict you are out protesting with your daughter named Ashanti another reason why Atacan I are meant to be best friends and you were arrested in. You've been dealing with the aftermath of that. You've sponsored Brianna Law for Kentucky. You're the only black woman currently in the Kentucky State House. So let's let's dissect this case in state's attorney boy I. Know You have a lot to add is the fact that there were no knock warrants how they handle just paperwork body cameras the grand jury I know that something that has really piece Pete People's interests about this grand jury in Oh what does this attorney general deal? So Rep Scott First let's talk about your op-ed why you felt you had to write it in a cave really personal place you said, this is personal to me. Sean in and I'm on this podcast with Queens. Come on State Attorney Ray boy This is power in so. Yes I happy that Opportunity Washington Post invited me to write a piece just from the perspective whatever that was on things going on here in Louisville Kentucky, and so that's exactly what I did I poured my heart into it as a mother of two black children. Masan is the same age as Taylor Madonna's nineteen. She wanted to be an emt in them. Brianna Taylor was murdered and she said to me Ma that didn't protect her from police violence I'm not sure this. So this is really pulling on us in shanty the people relieving leading the Front Lines here in Louisville for justice for Taylor are mostly women is so we're feeling this heavily. So yes, we've back to now to grandeur WANNA speak out. So that says to me that the Attorney General for Kentucky was so inept that in such a failure that you have rand jurors who want the right to speak out to say, he did not give us all of the options in front of us. There was no one there to speak for Briana Taylor in that this whole process was a sham that's where we all right now that says something about the continued. Kushner justice for Taylor in that's why we won't give up and that's why this movement is sustained

"state representative" Discussed on A Desi Woman with Soniya Gokhale
"But the Auto industry could definitely we have GM and Ford and Chrysler all working on electric vehicles and improve fuel efficiency. So we really could do more and I think that Michigan State University is one of the world's best universities for Supply Chain management. I would love to see sort of a off work between industry and government and Academia to figure out how do you manage your supply chain so that you have a lower carbon footprint off. These are all things that we can do right here at the state level and you know, America's middle class was born here in Michigan. And we see that that middle-class dream is not accessible to so many people anymore. Whether it's the cost of college or job opportunities that provide a livable wage. Those are things that we need to look at here in Michigan. I'm sure every other state is doing it too long. As I said, we were the home of the American middle class at the turn of the century when the Auto industry started booming, and so I think it's time for us to look at ways that we can rebuild build back better as Vice President. Biden says, I think it's really important that we look at ways for making the promise of America accessible to all thank you so much. It's really inspiring and you've really given us a lot to think about her and I guess in closing.

I'm really honored as of the AC woman to to be here with you and get to talk about my journey the political life wonderful. Wonderful. Yeah. I know thank you so much. And so, you know representative about your story is truly quite remarkable and I think a source of inspiration for not only indian-american women, but all women in this country and it is one of the reasons I actually sought you out for an interview firstly you immigrated to this country from India as a child went back to India as a teenager and then returned back to the US to pursue graduate school more than 30 years ago as an Indian American woman was born and raised in this country. I find that part of your formative years extremely interesting because our listeners may not appreciate how that may have shifted your perspective as young woman given the vast differences between two countries and you know, there's no question that this bicultural and immigrant experience is a departure from the background of most us politicians. And so that's my main question how has this experience enabled you to offer a unique perspective as a politician and policymaker? Sure. So first I want to say I never saw myself as a politician but as a public servant this is my journey of Public Service. My parents came here when I was less than four. I started kindergarten and I always knew I look up different when I first arrived in this country. I couldn't even speak English very well. I remember my cousins. I used to make fun of me. I would say Miss Miss multitude. So mrs. Obviously English is the word for nib or the point of a pencil in Telugu, which is my mother tongue and then suit means it's broken which was I was trying to get a teacher that my pencil is broken. So that was that was how I landed here without having really a strong command of English and being more comfortable. Actually. My mom says I spoke three or or Indian languages at that time all of them, you know as a four-year-old would but wow that's and so when I arrived and I knew I was different my mom sent me to school with, you know oil in my hair and have been the same forehead and two braids with ribbons at the end and homemade close cuz my father and she first of all she was a homemaker and then my father was well, he wasn't a professor. He retired as an English Professor, but he was a grad student. And so then she also became a grad student so they didn't have a lot of money so she sold all my clothes and so I was always the other I was always sort of you know, I lived in a university town. So my parents were educated and that was not a problem and they supported me throughout whatever education I pursued. This was in Stony Brook New York, but I I always knew I was different and when we moved to India after eleven years of living here by then, I figured I'm an American even I look in the n and you know, I come I have this third culture going down, right they call it the third culture kid when you live in one culture and your home is a different culture you as a child of immigrants or sometimes its military brats or whatever. It is will call third culture kids. And so I was a third culture kid and then we moved to India. I had a younger brother who was one my mom had finished her PhD and I I thought I could pursue anything else I wanted to and unfortunately because I was a girl and I wanted to pursue math so I could come back to United States cuz my mom said America loves Engineers. I was again the other because I thought Is the girl in a predominantly male profession? And then I came back to United States and I realized that seven years of living in India because I lived in India from 1981 till 1988. I had changed I had been exposed to them what I call a pluralism of product and I had a new perspective on you know, who I was and so I knew I was American but I also knew that there is a part of me that is very deeply connected to the spiritual homeland of India and learned a lot from my grandmother's I would take them to temples and my you know, so I came home and I knew I was the other so I think that really enabled me to be more sensitive to the needs of those who are more vulnerable and that also as a mom I volunteered a lot with my kids not feel otherwise, and so that led me to volunteer more in the community both in the temple in the schools. And that's what really inspires job. Me to run for public office was the fact that I thought every child deserves an education and that was what brought me to this place and then what has helped me as a legislator since I've been elected is that same consideration of someone who is more.

How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially
"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.

"And we're back things sponsor. Let's get back into it as we're talking about voting. Obviously Georgia is very very in the middle of all the controversy with the voter suppression issues as well as the giant purge. That has happened which would be also another thing for everybody all the listeners. To go back and check make sure you have not been purse because that is very very important obviously and then also having the conversation of voting being a right and not a privilege so with all of that. Can you kind of speak on a little more? Obviously we're coming into a big year for everything. Can you speak a little more on that for us to be aware? Not only of what's going on. Maybe what we should be paying attention to with that as well because obviously when it comes to the lawsuits and all of that. And we know that Stacey Abrams is a big voice has started her nonprofit which is frigging amazing but just kind of talking more letting US further listeners who may not completely no kind of detail that for us. That's right in thinking about voting. I think about people who've come before me and people who will come after mean. My vote is not about what I want. It's really about what I have seen what I want to see. Sometimes people get so tied up in voting for a candidate voting to make sure that if that person does not get elected. And I'm just throwing the baby out with the bathwater right and you know. I'll I'll say you know. Even some of my democratic socialist friends that was the whole point of the Bernie or bust mentality. It was like this or throw out the bath. Water baby and that mentality is really difficult. It is this cancel culture. It's all of this toxic nature that says if something to go your way then just kill it all together but in fact that's not what voting is about. Voting is all about choice and opportunity when you go to the ballot in March for the presidential primary. There will be a bunch of people there. There's also a write in slot. If you don't want anyone right in who you want to write in but at least your vote gets counted right. If you understand that your candidate is not going to get selected right before the election or maybe they have a runoff like. I did for their second election those votes matter even more we should be looking out for special elections and runoff elections. But they're not really jargon that people are used to there used to like. Oh the primary The general but what about the Special Elections? What about the runoffs? One about the times when twenty-three votes changes something imagine if you and your apartment building of people or your block of people said we're going to vote and you change the election. I bet you that your ability to feel more invested in the system would increase what we do know about voters right now. Which makes me really excited is that they're the youngest they've ever been right. And even when they say millennials don't vote what actually mean as we haven't done the data yet right. They're pulling information from not only forty year olds who have ten year olds and nineteen year olds. Who are just getting into college. They can't figure out how to do all that together. All the pundits can't even do it and so it's a farce. It is not true. That millennials genetics all of us that we don't vote we actually do. We've been voting in Georgia at three hundred and sixty per cent more than we ever have before. But we're doing it in a very specific way. We are early voting yes. We're not waiting for election day so if the election was supposed to be on this coming Tuesday this whole week would be early voting in the state of Georgia. We'll do it the week before we get off of work. Get Out of your place go early. Vote and that's really what's going to make the difference in this presidential election. That's awesome thank you. I've been taking over you got. I get really excited. These are very important issues right now. I was GONNA say. Ask One two for those who are considering running because those who are considering getting their their wet. I'm not one of those people. What would your advice for the be? Three things yes lorries. Love it one scrub your social media. Not Because you're trying to change who you are but because when voters come to look at you they're looking for bite sized pieces they WANNA understand okay. This person does that. They went there and they served this capacity. We know the average you know like buydell on a page Mentality is ten seconds. If you hold your phone right now just stare at it for ten seconds. You're going to be bored. So people are not really gonNA take that much time to look at like your you know twenty fourteen post about visiting the Grand Canyon. Unless you want that there to prove that you're an environmentalist. Go ahead and just clean it up so they can actually see you in the noise of what is the Internet. The second thing of course is get a kitchen cabinet of people who you trust. That can talk to your kitchen. Cabinet is that you open it. You're like Hey cheetos Hey doritos. Hey girl you can go in there and just let it go and no one else has to know. You need those handful of people who you can say. Did you know they pulled up my yard signs again? I'm so frustrated. Mlp's didn't go out on time in late from an interview. Meshu broke and all these things and then you can zip it together and go in and do the interview. You need to be able to have that kitchen cabinet to carry you throughout the campaign and the third thing is raise some money right. I was a twenty three year old broke college student when I decided to run for office. Con All my twenty-three-year-old broke friend right. Who would say yeah? I am so proud of you. I'm so glad you're reading. This is awesome. I really cannot give you twenty five dollars. I would take five dollars on my friends because that's one yard sign and really thinking about how you can do exciting things on a grassroots campaign. We raise money at drag shows in our election because that was a part of our voter and that was a part of our campaign. So don't think about raising money as Yucky thing that is self serving instead. Like I said if you're running for office you're running to balance a budget. You should be able to ask for money right. That's the job you're going to do so it's really some like job training. Yeah Yeah Money. Money money being poor now my money. Would you like to discuss anything that we have brought up these new projects anything? That's specific to you that you would love for list listeners. To know about words listeners. To know about to all the families out there you know. I just WanNa thank you all for resisting. It is difficult. You know. It's hard I know that As a Dula. I'm working with Mamas who are about to deliver or who have delivered right now and the state of Georgia has gotten the worst ranking in maternal health outcomes as people say black women are three times more likely to die than their counterparts in childbirth. As much as we do want to educate the public about that I believe we should be sensitive in how we do it because it is triggering traumatizing to tell someone that they might perish for making this life decision when you have also restricted their ability to terminate a pregnancy right. So I just WanNa thank families out there and the people who support them and to let you know I'm always here in Atlanta Georgia rocking out fighting for you know the into voter suppression and the continuation of some progressive politics. So I do WANNA ask a personal question because obviously you have a very heavy duty duty job. Heavy heavy duty jobs. What do you do to give yourself a chance to step away? What is your outlet? Thank you family is definitely number one for me. I went to college for dance so I really like to dance. That can be like in a class or in a club. You might catch me. Yeah come on. Atlanta s Friday night. Let's do this. We're GONNA be friends so it was fun And then the third thing of course is shutting down off of social media. Sometimes it can be really toxic and whether you're in elected office or not. I think we all need to do that old. Thank you so much. I've been so excited I've been telling everybody knows so yes I am a fan girl over here. I'm really excited that you are here. I'm really excited. That you are giant voice for our state and our part of the fight in progressing Your your heart and obviously you're passionate has been an amazing representation of Georgia. So thank you. They y'all and that concludes our interview with Part Canon as you can tell we were very excited have lasted a lot longer than I did. Had to have a couple of moments of our Chil- Smith it's okay. It's okay it's okay. I loved it. I loved every second of it. I'm sorry it was a beautiful thing behold and I just wanted to tell everyone yes please get involved and you never know reach out talk to these people they will reach back to you and they will have a conversation with you and that is very very important in getting to know who your representatives are. Yeah Yeah and I love her story of she just was mad yes about who is representing or into the went to the Capitol and then met someone who then men toward her tapped her to run. And reach out yeah. There's no telling what can happen if you just put an effort in getting to know people in the story it's true. I used to tell myself that all the time I could either stay in which I would love. I could also go out and meet people and I don't know what that will lead to can be rewarding and be kind of how we met. That's how we met. Yeah so I just wanted to say thank you for coming in with us and sitting with us and having such a candid and open conversation for those who are thinking about going out and actually trying to become a part of the boys being involved by getting into politics. Listen to our advice from amazing things that you can do and encourage you to do so. Try represent us. We need you. We need you. Yes and we need more voices like part.

"Who can help get the seventeen thousand children out of our foster care system today what we want for Georgians and people across the world to know about religious liberty religious freedom which we believe to be religious restriction. Is that if you are able to come to the table on this conversation and say hey love thy neighbor do not judge then we need you right now right. So what can we do? Because obviously I am someone who is beyond passionate about things like this because I have seen firsthand what that had what happens to our children when those types of restrictions happen what happens to the families who oftentimes are more equipped to work with kids. Who are little come from a dysfunctional background. Because the one thing I've had to tell many people who ask me about adoption and foster care might be ready. These kids are not healthy right. You're not getting an any from the movies. Also love you ain't just but the thing is it's not obvious. These are very troubled. Youth oftentimes and we know that after h five. They're less likely to be adopted. Actually h three Let's be real honest. Isn't that any child? That old has gone through some sort of trauma and often times. I see people of the Lgbtq community understand that and are more equipped to handle or at least are more prepared to handle such trauma so would that what can we do to continue to make sure our voices are now beyond just the regular emails we are. What can we do yes? Three things? One is registered to vote. Y'All the deadlines are always happening. You know people like who wins the deadline so I can do it the night before or the voter registration deadlines are always happening. Don't worry about whether or not you're trying to get in for this election or that election. We believe voting to be a practice right registered to vote. So you can see. Oh my polling places green today Oh it was. Actually purple voted last time. I mean literally just a practice of knowing your space when you're going to make these decisions because these are the senators that you're voting for if they have an incumbent letter by their name. Please look them up before you go. You can see your sample ballot online across the state of Georgia by just going to the secretary of state's webpage. The second thing is no that politicians are playing games with people's lives right now. And they deserve to be held accountable. Social media is a great way to do that to make people understand that your beliefs are equally as important to your elected officials beliefs. Even if they have the power to go in and to write a piece of legislation you need to remind them that that is only a fraction of their jobs right. The main part of our job at the state capital is to balance the state budget. If your elected official to not talk to you about the money that they're trying to get into the state budget for their hospitals and their schools and all they can do is talk to you about restricting people's ability to live in safe and healthy communities. Please quickly redirect them help them understand that ours. State of Georgia has the Department of Family and child services and their budget line is possibly about to get cut again. If they really care about making sure that people have healthy lives they should be doing a better job of balancing that budget. Line the third thing that I truly truly believe that we can all do is to talk to children When you're talking to children help them understand what it is that you have experienced regardless of their age? Help them understand why something makes you upset. Help them know that they can speak up if they feel like something is happening. Our children these days are at age three thinking about gender identity and if we would have adults who would just listen and talk to the And not push religion down their throat at that moment with conversion therapy then they might actually be okay. I am excited in the opportunity. You know to keep registering people to vote to keep talking about the state budget and of course to keep talking to children to stop religious restrictions from happening. Right that's awesome. We do have some more of our.

"Put My car sweat shirt on and went down to the State Capitol and tried to get to know my legislator. I figured I was going to run into a white man. Yeah instead I ran into an African American lesbian with locked hair and we really became friends. I'm so proud to know that. She found me to be such a pivotal member of her district that when she decided to resign her office in two Thousand Fifteen. She called me and personally asked me to run for the seat now. I was twenty three years old. I just got out of college. I didn't think I was going to run for office. Maybe after law school after a career. So we dropped everything and picked up a grassroots campaign. We had a month and a half to raise fifty thousand dollars and to try to talk to twenty two thousand voters in the first election. We had in two thousand sixteen was in January so our legislative session which I was running to be a part of had already started so. We felt the urgency and tried to get as many voters to the polls. We actually had our celebration party planned for here in Pont City market at nine pm because the polls closed at eight well. We left our house at like eight twenty. Gotten this parking lot by like eight thirty. Can we saw the results? We had lost the election by twenty three votes out of twenty two thousand people. If twenty three more people had voted we would have closed the deal so we had a runoff election February. I immediately started serving. The presidential primary was in March so we were back on the ballot in March and once again on the ballot in November. So if anyone out there interested in running for office and someone tells you you're GonNa have to do it multiple times. That's just a part of the game and that's how we got our seat. Both amazing yeah and as you were talking about to the audience and to the people. What would your statements be about why it is important that if you are as passionate and as as we are all passionate to come out and represent and be a voice and especially for those who are women of color people colored those in the LGBTQ. I Y it's really important right now that that community step up cultural change is happening in our communities. And it's also happening in government buildings if you look at the Georgia State Capitol Right now. We just put in a mom of which is for you if you are pumping or breastfeeding. We've never had that before. And this is because legislators who are female who had tiny's needed to be and they started breastfeeding on the floor of the state capital and they started to say we're doing this because people can't come here and do what they need to do if they want to be a citizen advocate. They have to choose whether they're going to feed their child or not and so they're opportunities for our state capital. I believe to have gender neutral bathrooms. Currently we don't and I believe that only if there are more people with intersectional identities who are not just say queer like me but maybe our moms of Queer kids or maybe dad's of trans kids. Then that is when we'll see. The tide turned Brian. That's a great point. Love that so in your time with the government. Yes we've been looking at. I've been looking at some of your bills and some of the things that you have been pushing and I did want to talk about because I love it and I need to know more about it. The bill of rights. Thank you yeah I wanNA know all about it how you came to come together and decided this needs to be talked about at the very least as a way of protesting. That's right so the abortion ban in twenty nineteen was really just another day of business as usual at Georgia State Capitol Some of my colleagues who identify as Caucasian and male were up to what I consider to be business as usual try restricting people's rights not listening to their constituents and in fact doing something that is incredibly costly to our state. They decided that in that day even though we had done five or ten direct actions on the state floor by turning our backs to the speakers linking arms bringing media in shouting out planned parenthood. Not leaving the well when we were supposed to in continuing to speak but they were still able to get the bill passed so we said as much as you have the power to go legislative council and to what you say is to write legislation that your constituents want you to right. We do too so a few of US black women. Legislators went to Legislative Council and under the understanding that our constituents had reached out to us about men's health we wanted to write some bills so we did the testicular bill of rights. We additionally did the vanishing Viagra Act. We also tried to create a study committee on erectile dysfunction and we talked a lot about the social and mental aspects of masculinity that are toxic and in fact those are the reasons why we have unplanned pregnancy right Unfortunately our bill has not gotten a hearing but it has gotten media from here across the world. We are open to talking about it anytime. I love it. Yeah as I was reading it. I think I was giggling but I was really excited because this is absolutely the questions that we need to come back to. Whether it's actually talking about sexual assault or get unwanted pregnancies any of that these important questions that should be addressed. Why aren't meant taking responsibility for all of these actions that are happening? Why is being just dumped on to Women those identifies women or those who have vaginas general. Why is that so heavily? Pay For pay in his health benefit plan for Viagra tier one right you know. Get that pay for for active members as well as retirees additionally you know when we look at what happens when someone is trying to get a DNA test to prove paternity. Does the state pay for that? No so just trying to pull out some of the fallacies and contradictions of the Georgia code. I love it and then as I was reading through your stuff you also do a lot of work with homelessness and Housing and displacement. Can you talk a little bit more about that? Because I know it's always been a crisis but it's becoming more more of an awareness especially with our current administration not really caring about the underlying issues that echoes your nominal bases economic. Thank you yes. This is my job. Yes Oh can you talk a little more about that? Please certainly in thinking about housing. Insecurity is not just someone who is sleeping on the street. Sometimes it is Mama's who are paying for one week in a hotel so her kids can stay in the area so they can go to school and no one in the school will know what they're going through. We been hearing from families across the state of Georgia rural suburban urban. You name it who are facing housing insecurity. Most people are able to talk about that issue when they see it Maybe they see it when they're getting off the highway and someone is asking for help. Or maybe they see it when they're at a grocery store. And someone is expressively hungry. But what we don't really talk about is the mental health aspects of that in the physical health aspects of that so we have tried to coalesce with some of the organizations that meet people where they are. These are organizations like community land trusts the whole point of community land. Trust is to get some land and to hold it in a trust so that no matter what that house on that land will remain affordable community land trust right now in the state of Georgia are so notable because Georgia is the first state to ever have a community land trust beating out. Vermont. New York -ELVAR NYA years and years ago but we have not done anything to actually protect. Those community land trusts in staying affordable. So this past year we worked with the city of Atlanta's housing department and government relations as well as the community land trust here in Atlanta. To say what are your families experiencing and they said this. They don't own the land. They own the house so when property tax time comes around the community land trust is paying for the land and they're paying for the house but that homeowner cannot request an exemption from school taxes from municipal taxes. If they're old enough because they don't technically owned the land so there are some administrative fixes just like that that the governor did and signed and was fine but there are other issues like mental health protecting veterans Making sure that Trans and gender non conforming youth who are sleeping under the bridge blocks from here because we visit them actually have a way to get back on their feet and sometimes that can be through a foster care system other times. I can be through a supportive family. We're trying to make some pathways for folks to get out of housing insecurity. Beth awesome. I was reading. That was really really inspiring. Just understanding how harmful gentrification can be but how inevitable it often is. Unfortunately there's no real solution and seeing things like that talking about different types of bills how the government can assist or should be a part of this conversation instead of it just being based on income or based on individuals and it seems like it's hard for us but slowly at least being conversational. Yeah we're getting there and I'll say one of the most exciting moments I had working across. The aisle last year was with a rural legislator. Who told me about when he was growing up? He used to have bunnies at his house all the time. And He loved his bunnies until he found out they were rats and in that understanding he would support my bill making sure that people had safe housing. We were able to pass a bill. That is a part of kind of tenants bill of rights to say if you report your buddies or rats to your landlord they cannot just go ahead and evict you. Which is what's happening in the state of Georgia if you report mold or mildew or any of the things that are environmental or health and safety issues they can actually terminate your rental contract. If I knew that no I didn't I didn't wow so. We changed that bill last year. That's awesome. I knew that there was some changes happening with. The winners writes things. I did not know included the fact that we could have been kicked out and I'm renters. What what wow. I'm learning things today. All how Georgia okay. But we fixed that exit. That's amazing And then also we kinda wanted to come back around. You were talking about foster hair and such something. That's very passionate to me I am. I used to social work. Thank you weird statement saying I am not as of last week. That's very new. But I was working with the Department of Justice I worked with foster care. I'm also adopted and I know once again the whole idea of religious freedom. Bill is coming back round. I know that a legislators trying to reintroduce it again and then of course I am more than horrified because there are things happening around the country that is allowing actual like this to go forward Can you kind of talk about what that 'cause I know you've been in there while they were trying to fight this bill to begin with as we're coming back to this? What are some things that we need to be paying attention to? How do? We vocally advocate and physically advocate to fight against such a bill. When you hear the term religious freedom you should think religious restriction right. And we're trying to make sure that people understand whether you believe in someone or something that gets you somewhere that's fine. We're not trying to stop people from believing or not believing what we want to make sure that we do is create the separation of church and state now in a state like Georgia in the Bible Belt. That's really difficult for reasons like you have pastors running for office. You also have governmental policies that create a special space in the state capital for prayer to always happen. So we're juxtaposing people who believe strongly and people who understand what the public wants what the public wants today is for there to be the separation of church and state you can look at even a place that idol eat chick fillet open on Sundays because they understand for their beliefs that that is what they need to do on Sundays. Great do that on Sundays. Maybe Jehovah's Witness do it on Saturday. Do whatever day you need to except for when you are restricting someone else's life right and in issues related to not only baking a cake for a wedding even though that Supreme Court case really was disappointing to us all But also about adopting people. We saw this week as well. The Senate dropped the Anti lgbtq adoption bill in our words.

"Though today. We and by we I do mean me. I'm so excited so excited. Oh listeners. I saw such a sight. I had a moment okay. But we're so excited to introduce you to a member of the Georgia House of Representatives that I have been watching since the beginning of her career in Atlanta. Sounds wake rapier than I intended but hey I how because it's been exciting but her name is part. Canon and I will tell you yes. I got super excited. I I kinda girl. She definitely fan girl And we know I'm not the best that speech sometimes and yes. I fumbled a quite a bit. I had to restart a few times. And she was very kind and patient. She was very well-spoken. Also I feel like this is really indicative of our relationship which is antagonistic but beautiful friendship just sat back. You struggle terrible such a terrible i. I really thought it was so sweet because as I told you afterwards normally you see people get that way about celebrities Samantha Listener. She gets that way about representative. I get that way about people who are a powerhouse and I love seeing those who strive to go beyond even more so when I see someone who end she is twenty eight by the way a young in comparison to myself as well as she has been in this game. It's twenty sixteen as well as the fact that yes she's very well-spoken and when I say well spoken. I mean she was ready. She was ready every question. I had no fumbling. I was like my Gosh. And not only that she and and as you will hear in the interviews have some of the best wit even politically when it comes to combating some of the ignorance that we often see during political times whatever whatnot. She had some of the best wet even in types of reform and types of bills and I love that so much because that kind of power that kind of level of assuredness. I know this is not going to go anywhere. But I'm making a statement is amazing to me and she is one of our representatives. She is a queer black woman who is in our House of Representatives in a very conservative state. Yeah so of course we do talk about the fact that is turning purple. And we're hoping to be able to be one of those swing state But we do know Georgia is conservative and we know that some of the biggest controversies came with the last gubernatorial election with Stacey Abrams and Bryan camp. And it's been closely watch stacey. Abrams herself has made a name. In combating voter suppression. Yes so just with all that when I see things like this and a powerhouse like this making a name for herself in a manner. That is so just inspirational. Yeah I have moments okay and I. It was beautiful to witness really was and for myself and I would imagine for a lot of people listening. It's hard sometimes with politics. It's just it seems like no matter. What you do is just constant bad news. And there's no change in hearing from someone like Park Ken who does have all these intersectional identities and who does sound so hopeful and like she was very positive. Not So. Nice to see yeah. It was really refreshing and we've spoke before about how sometimes change it just takes a while right and it is happening but bad news is so much easier to consume and so much easier to just bring it on yourself but to hear her this positively. Giddy and this hope for. We're going to get more people to run and it's GonNa continue to progress was really really refreshing right before we get into the the interview. The amazing station we had. We wanted to throw some statistics out there. Because you know we love some statistics true so according to the history ours and archive site there have been over seventy women of color in us. Congress since nineteen sixty four. Yes which I got my own chance to geek out about. When Samantha gave me a mystery tax I did. I was trying to make sure that the site was updated and could not find the last updated date so you sat there for fifteen minutes. Fifteen ish try do fine the cyber me and I said you you definitely succeeded but yeah the excitement that you had on your life. Let me find it. I can do this. I was bored. I don't like he loves some research. I love research girl. Love some research so there have been going back to this. There have been thirteen. Asian Pacific American Women. A forty-seven African American Women Twenty Hispanic American women in Congress to this date which the greatest number no definitely not the greatest number. We can certainly improve upon that and I hope that we will and with those numbers Patsy mink of Hawaii. The first Asian Pacific American woman to be elected to the house in one thousand nine hundred four surely his own one of my favorites of New York as the first African American woman elected to the house in nineteen eight and Eliana Ross. Lithuanian of Florida was the first Spanish. American woman won the election to house in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and for extra credit. The first woman of color to be elected to the Senate was Carol Moseley. Braun and African American woman from Illinois in Nineteen Ninety two and Maisy Hirono from Hawaii was the first woman of color to be elected to both chambers. She was elected to the Senate in two thousand twelve. Then we have some statistics for LGBTQ plus representation in politics according to it gets better dot org turn eighteen. They were ten members of Congress on the federal level who identifies Lgbtq plus and of those ten five are women and of those five zero. We're women of color now. These are outdated so changes are coming when it comes to the state level. Constituents are more presented. Which again is another example of local politics? Pay Attention get evolved. Don't forget about those. Local elections are so important to have very important and they're more likely to hear your voice unfortunately than those in the federal level and yes these statistics that we gave you more on the Federal Level. But yes these local elections are probably more likely. Have Your Voice be heard you being able to be better representatives so these are wild. Local elections are very important in something that we need to be paying attention to. Yes check your station. Yeah out and vote and we're about ready to get into our interview but first we're going to get into a quick break for word from our sponsor. Okay so a recent study found that a great hair day makes you happier more confident but that same say also revealed that ninety. Five percent of women don't feel great about their hair. I can definitely relate to the confidence part because if my hair is doing something a little weird something. I don't want it to do then I can't stop thinking about it. The rest of the day Alma Guy. We've all been there. Paintings Rosewater collection feels and smells amazing and comes with a deep treatment. That leaves your hair pedal soft. It was inspired by Ramadan traditions. When many in the Middle East break the fast with rosewater because of its hydrating benefits and the collection is free of sulfates parents dies and Mineral Oil. You look really great thank you. I actually worked in a place for a while that was very sensitive environmentally and we weren't allowed to use shampoos that had sulfate thin. So that's something that I look for these days and bonus. I love the way that my hair looks now. So experience something new and discover what good with the Pantene nutrient blends collection and we're back thinking sponsor so let's get started with our interview with Park Cannon. I was born part. Canon named after an actress who I found out ran for office in Tennessee. Names Park overall. She's an environmentalist. It's really awesome to think about that. But I am a member of the Georgia House of Representatives. Which is a part of our states government at twenty three years old. I stepped off my college campus and decided I wanted to run for office. I did not know much more than that. I was frustrated about what was going on. And Luckily when we won our election we brought a very progressive voice to the state capital. I am openly queer. I love to make sure that people talk about intersection analogy because I am an abortion. Dula a birth Dula and a preschool teacher. And I think. What's also pretty exciting? Is that last year? The state capital. They did an article about fashion at the state capital and they said it was because of alphabetical order. That I was I but yet I love me some fashion. Oh I'M GONNA say you're killing his outfit today. You like. The shoes alone is amazing in the hills. Black and white POLKA DOT hills. And they're your rainbows even better. I'm like yes. This is my type of person because I also only wear hills and boots most of the times rare to find me in anything else because I am a short girl at five three five four so I feel like I need that little stature just a little bit you know to go with the personality right. Love your fashion is on point. I would definitely say it's not just because of the alphabetical order. Yeah I was looking at your stuff and I'm thinking I'm about ten or so years older than you and I feel very much like an underachiever. I God things that you have done. I know you're doing right now. Is just incredible and again like I said. Fan galling because I love seeing someone with such drive and you have so many good things behind you. I love again watching you campaign. It was one of the beautiful moons and you are with the House of Representatives and district. Fifty eight so district. Fifty eight is in midtown downtown in southwest Atlanta. I like to call it a reproductive justice district because you have neighborhoods Virginia highland with homes in the millions. And you have neighborhoods like Pittsburgh which is literally the nation's worst representation for Predatory lending back in the early two thousands Within the district as well. So you have all kinds of folks all kinds of families and I'm really trying my hardest to represent them all right And just for our audience is this is based in Georgia Like I said. I love kind of coping seeing what's happening in individual stays in the state level because I think that's where it all begins obviously when we talk about voting rights and we're talking about voting suppression a lot of our voices and all of our representatives are supposed to have our best interests and so we know that state representation is very important and you are a part of the Georgia state representation because we have a very international audience. Yes Atlanta Georgia. You know in the south of the United States and what we of course are fighting against in Georgia is the fact that we are a conservative state but Atlanta is a progressive city so I represent the both yes and it's very interesting because we're quickly talking about Georgia slowly becoming a very purple state. And they were talking about slow becoming a swing state and how important it is that we do. Keep an eye as we are slowly changing some ideas and some heads. Hopefully yeah yeah. It goes spreads out beyond Metro Atlanta as well. Listen that but yes. You are a big voice and a big representation of that progression. And if you don't mind talking a little bit about your history because I know you kind of dabbled or started working with representative Simone Bell back to that for us so in like twenty thirteen. I was so angry in twenty twelve. Our state passed a bill. That was part of a federal opportunity to restrict access to reproductive health. Care so our state was one of the first twenty twelve and twenty thirteen. That really took that on to the House and the Senate and the governor loved it and all of the departments of public health and community health really had to change their operating procedures. I felt that was a waste of taxpayer dollars and I wanted to know who was responsible so I got up you know..

I know your district is much larger than that. I always think Catholic so for you to be baptist. I was like Oh this is interesting. I is funny I we. We joked a little bit about that when I was running and you know people would ask me about it and of course it. It got kind of interesting because of course we have a really big horse industry in in the district. And so they're like. Oh you're baptist you. You're going to mess with all of our gambling or whatever you know with like obviously with the horse track and stuff and I said look. I'm not on some crusade. They'd like tariff archer industry is going to be fine. You know but no look I mean we we. We serve the same God and I've never ever seen any issues with that as far serving the people and Garin grow areas though when Julie. We're here in the office is a raider as you got. The tour met the Minister of Christmas. And they also have Jason Sikora who tapes our podcast and I know you have questions or look at my notes here. I'll start with this some comments first of all thank you for being here at Raider and undiscovered Lafayette. This is awesome and I really liked. I know you said just call us because that's also one of our values here this. Just call us. Customer Service. Line government is right Mer service. Yeah you mentioned also millennials and taxes. But I'M GONNA say it's the same for us. Gen xers too. I just got my parish in city home tax bills. And today as well yeah exactly big silent more more money here come under the right now right exactly early December Jen. You kind of mentioned this a little bit in. I want to just reiterate that everybody of all ages should make voting a priority. And make sure you do your homework. Don't just go in there blindly and check off. Some things expend an hour reading through everything. That's all it takes and do your best to go meet the people because you may not be able. If you don't live in New Hampshire Iowa you may not be able to meet all the presidential candidates but for everything locally and even people running statewide office. They're they're here. They're out of vents. They're trying to meet you so take those opportunities even even when they walk around our neighborhood. I'll step outside and shake your hand and take your pamphlet. Certainly all right questions here you talk about getting into politics and how it was just an open door but was there a personal drive to get into it or did you just dive in like I. Ah I like to think of myself as a very driven person. You know if I'm if I'm going to make a decision to do something I'm GonNa do it like with both feet in and just like jump headfirst but yeah. I don't know that there there was really ever a drive to say. I definitely want to run for office but I did enjoy being involved involved. You know I got like I got pretty involved in college. Just you know in the party and then in different local politics and things like that And I saw the importance of it early on you know the the actual aspect of running I think was still especially in my young twenty's was obviously like very foreign to me because I didn't other than my grandfather like I said when he was mayor and he stopped being mayor when I was four so I don't remember member at all so other than that. I really didn't have anybody in my life had run for office so I thought that was hard. It is hard but I I mean. I didn't think it was like a barrier that I can do my interesting. And that's why I asked it because even as somebody his forties we've done a ton of different jobs. There's there's sometimes a drive to do it and sometimes you just say us and see what happens. What's the best and worst? Part of politics You know it's funny. I I told him the other day. I've I feel like in politics. You meet some of the absolute best people and some of the absolute worst people in the world and you know fortunately in the legislature look do have a few bad apples like sure you know and and do you have some people that are just absolutely there for the wrong reasons and you get frustrated with them like sure but for the most part people in like they're going to make mistakes and they're gonNA make bad decisions but they're typically there because they really love their community they really want to serve. They love their state And that's look. Yeah I mean I know everybody wants to think the opposite of everyone but that's what I found I've I've made some some really great friends along the way I had some really great mentors along the way and you know have really appreciate that and so and look I mean you can get really hurt you know and you can trust some some people that have no very nefarious reasons for doing what they do. So that's hard when we find out that somebody you thought was your friend to actually turns out to be at all. But that's you know that's that's life as well. I was thinking I asked this question to most of our guests mm-hmm because we've had counselors on here doctors and my wife's a teacher so ask those questions and it's the same thing you want to help the drivers to help. And that's what you stay where you are. But you're gonNA hit some roadblocks and that is the downfall of it. Where can people get more information about you a number of ways you? You know my website campaign wise. Julian Dot Org If you go on facebook and twitter Julia Emerson or Julia Merson. La Email address is Emmerson J. at Legis dot L. A. Dot Gov that goes to our office phone. The numbers three three seven. Eight eight six five three one four. Okay all right so two more questions here. What are some good resources for listeners? Who want a good unbiased? Look at what's going on in politics. I'm putting you on the spot. Oh man cable what do you like you. You know I do like cable. I honestly I would tell you and this certainly not going to be those unbiased thing but follow. Oh you're elected officials series. I mean clearly we all have our political persuasions and everything But I think it's our responsibility to educate educate the public on what we're doing Obviously you can go on the legislative website and read it for yourself I do think par- is Great. I do think cables good The in in you know it's it's kind of funny like you WanNa say basically whatever you want to believe you can find some kind of outlet back you up on it but I think if you have real questions about legislation I really do think that you should try to call your elected officials. I mean if they don't answer the phone call me and I'll text them and be like what the Heck's wrong with you I know but but but seriously I I really I appreciate the people in my district who who follow what I do. who comment on things on mm facebook who email me who call me? Text me Idea my very best. Give everybody the pros and cons. I can only vote one way on a bill up or down. I guess I could abstain. But that's not very nice and so you know we can only we can only pick one of two ways and but I'll be happy to explain to them. Why voted a a certain way and then why other people voted their way? So I knew I was going to put you on the spot with that question but you answered it amazingly so thank you. Thank you final question. If you were doing this what would you be doing. You Know I. I really enjoy what I do and like my my normal professional life. I you know we we do a lot of I mean we do marketing. Really I mean you know. Media Bison and and what speaks to people and we do it for businesses and organizations ends and we do a lot of polling as well to try to understand how people are feeling and so. That's what I mean. I'm I'm with you. I'm always interested in. It's so hard to get young people people to answer polls. It's kind of indicative of like how they vote is well But we do. We have started doing a lot of text polling as well L. to try to younger people will definitely more. Yeah they don't get frustrated. Somebody's texting them. They're weird it some- yes but I mean for the most part they're like Oh okay like because I think a lot of people complain like we'll nobody ever asked me about my opinion. You know so you have this people who will tech back like profanity's fantasies and it's really terrible people back like they'll absolutely answer every question. Yeah so yeah I mean yeah I think I would probably I be doing more of that. I think I'm involved in politics in the legislature. Also because I just I enjoy humans and human interaction and human nature and I'm trying to understand where people are coming from And so I guess like my love of that you know. Running for office in politics ended up being a natural fit for me but yeah just I think it's just really entertaining. You know. I like not entertaining bad way. But you have one hundred and five members of the House and they come from one hundred and five different parts of the state and one hundred and five different backgrounds and experiences and everybody brings something different to the table and has different motivations and trying to figure out what those motivations are is part of. What makes it interesting? That sounds like this office. Well thank you for being here. This is this has been awesome and Jim Of course thank you for letting me ask some questions. Thank you so much. We'll besides her Jason Jason. Thank you besides living humans. I know you love dogs right and cat hat and facebook. Tell us about them quickly. Oh you know my dog. Oh Wow that's durable that's cute. He's showing me his tattoo of his dog organ cat yes. Oh my dog's name. Is Louis like Louisiana real cheesy and stuff So he's he's greatest golden retriever. Seven months old.

Kitty that actually ended up picking up one day when I was in South Carolina going to class and anyways long story.
