The BGG Podcast - Visibility is on the Ballot

Host A’shanti Gholar speaks to Glynda Carr, CEO and co-founder of Higher Heights for America, and Linh Nguyen, political director of RUN AAPI. They discuss the power of women of color on the ballot and in the voting booth in the final days of the election.

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 to Politics is produced by Cinthia Pimentel. Original music was composed by Elisheba Ittoop.
