In this week’s episode, co-host Ryan Coonerty speaks with Washington State Representative Kristine Reeves. They talk about her youth in the foster care system and her path to becoming the first Afro-Latina woman elected to the Washington House in eighteen years and the only woman in the legislature with children under the age of five. Representative Reeves has authored critical legislation to expand child care, protect consumers, and support working families. She also advocates the need to give more resources to legislators, especially those from underrepresented communities, so they can succeed and create the representative democracy we desperately need. Tune in to learn more about her evidence-based practices in decision-making and the importance of unpacking bias as a legislator.
