Great discussion between Ed Trust's Ameshia Cross and Sen. Shevrin D. "Shev" Jones, Florida District 34. This show reminds me of how Texas and Florida need to get together and talk. Our battles are so similar.
I agree with Sen. Jones that we totally need a political movement predicated on a "true village" so that our communities can have political efficacy, including how to build coalitions, how to work with political officials, the nonprofit sector, and so on.
Senator Jones suggests that philanthropic organizations can support civic engagement that are teaching Black History—and for us here in Texas, Mexican American Studies, Asian American and Native American Studies—so that we can start to see changes.
The pendulum always does swing the other way, for sure. It was encouraging to listen to this. This show reminds me of how Texas and Florida need to get together and talk!
