Nakisa talks about her community in Charlotte, North Carolina, the environmental and social challenges it faces, the level of engagement, the biases in difficulties in engaging for people who work long or unusual hours, advantages to big businesses, and other challenges. She also talks about her work facing these challenges, organizing and enabling people to solve them.
We talk about civic engagement beyond voting, acting beyond in election years, and running for office. In this episode, you’ll hear from her experience and perspective what you face motivating and leading communities on the receiving end of polluting industries, historically locked out of politics, not knowing how to start, but needing to start if they hope to reverse those historical trends.
You’ll hear her enthusiasm, which I see increasing since her being discovered to attend the conference she described in her first episode.
I think you’ll like the commitment she chooses. I can’t wait to hear her results.
