The BGG Podcast Bonus Episode - Alexis McGill Johnson: “Everyone has a contribution.”

The BGG podcast is back for Season 3! We are collaborating with She The People to highlight their 20 women of color to watch in 2020!

The Brown Girl's Guide to Politics Podcast is all about amplifying the voices of women who are too often forgotten in media coverage. On this bonus episode, host A’shanti Gholar speaks with Alexis McGill Johnson, the Acting President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. In this episode, the duo discusses the essential need for reproductive rights as well as the power of political involvement, and the effects of Covid-19.

In the BGG to Politics blog, A’shanti created a space for women of color to learn about the current state of women in politics, to support others breaking into the political sphere, and to celebrate incredible people changing the course of the country. A’shanti founded the blog in 2018 and teamed up with Wonder Media Network in 2019 to extend The BGG platform to audio.

The Brown Girls Guide is produced by Cinthia Pimentel. Original music was composed by Elisheba Ittoop.
