Podcast: Centering Marginalized Communities

July 7, 2017 | Francoise Stovall

This week we’re bringing you a deep dive into how an intersectional approach to money in politics brings new voices to the movement and helps those who are most harmed by big money politics take a stronger leadership role within the movement to stop it. Allie Boldt of Demos and Jasmine Gomez of Free Speech For People talk to Laura about their new framework for ensuring that historically marginalized people — like people of color, LGBTQ, low income folks, people with disabilities, and more — are centered in the movement for a stronger democracy. Allie and Jasmine have been grappling with these issues for a long time and recently put on some events to center LGBTQ voices in the money in politics fight. And they’ll explain how and why you should host a similar event wherever you live.
