For far too long, women of color have been overlooked and underrepresented in U.S. politics. In this episode, we talk to two women fighting tirelessly to change that—for the 2020 election and beyond. First, you’ll hear from Aimee Allison, the founder of She the People, about how she is building one of the country’s most influential political networks for women of color. Then, you’ll hear from Lorella Praeli, who leads the political advocacy group Community Change. Lorella first jumped into politics to fight for the rights of undocumented students like herself, and then mobilized the Latinx vote for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Both of these women are courageous leaders challenging the status quo to build a much fairer, more equal political system for all of us. Tune in and find out how you can, too.

More about our guests:

  • Aimee Allison is founder and president of She the People, a national network elevating the voice and power of women of color. A democratic innovator and visionary, Aimee leads national efforts to build inclusive, multiracial coalitions led by women of color. In April 2019, she convened the first presidential forum for women of color, reaching a quarter of the American population.
  • Lorella Praeli is the co-president of Community Change, a national organization focused on building the political power of those most marginalized by injustice, especially low-income people of color. She moved to the U.S. from Peru when she was 10 years old. Lorella started advocating for undocumented immigrants and other marginalized communities as a college activist, and ever since, she’s been fighting to expand the rights and raise the voices of people too often excluded or exploited by those in power.
