The BGG Podcast - Kabzuag Vaj: “People closest to the pain need to lead.”

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. Host A’shanti Gholar speaks with Kabzuag Vaj, the co-founder and co-executive director of Freedom, Inc—an organization that focuses on ending violence against people of color, women and youth. They discuss the lack of accessibility for remote learning, the rise of gender-based violence, and the importance of allyship.

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.
