EP. 45 — Street Heat w/ Congresswoman Barbara Lee & Linda Sarsour
We’re back with a powerhouse episode! California Congresswoman Barbara Lee and National Women’s March Co-Chair Linda Sarsour breakdown the reality of fighting for social, racial, and economic justice. We learn about how Congresswoman Lee’s political career was shaped by working with the Black Panthers and on Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm’s historical presidential campaign. We learn about how Linda Sarsour fought to disband the NYPD’s unwarranted surveillance of the American Muslim community after 9/11. Congresswoman Lee says if you want to see change you’ve got to keep up the “street heat.” And Sarsour says it’s time for us to be louder than the haters, who are so dang loud. Prepared to be inspired!

It’s the end of season 2 already? We close strong with messages from our listeners and conversations with #BlackLivesMatter co-founder Alicia Garza, and comedian Wyatt Cenac. Garza is an Oakland-based organizer who is currently the Special Projects Director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance. She describes her lasting impressions from the 2016 election cycle, and gives advice for those hoping to be “allies.” Cenac opens up about his experiences on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and explains why his new TOPIC produced series “aka Wyatt Cenac” focuses on a superhero fighting gentrification in Brooklyn.
