Join Antonia Juhasz and Sonali Kolhatkar for a special live broadcast from the She the People Summit in San Francisco, “a National women of color in politics summit featuring history-making candidates, members of congress, and activists coming together ahead of the 2018 midterm elections to highlight the women of color who are driving the modern progressive and social justice movements within the Democratic Party and beyond.” 
 
Organized by the incredible Aimee Allison (formerly a KPFA host).
 

She the People is the leading race, gender, and politics network and initiative that advances our democracy by calling women of color fully into their fierce and loving leadership and collective power. She the People elevates and amplifies the voices and power of women of color in our role in forging an inclusive, multiracial coalition that will transform U.S. democracy. Founded and led by Aimee Allison, President of Democracy in Color, She the People is telling a new national story that rightly narrates women of color as the drivers of a new progressive political and cultural era.”
