Recorded at NewDEAL’s 12th Annual Leaders Conference, this week’s episode features a conversation between host Ryan Coonerty and NewDEAL Leader Maryland Delegate Jazz Lewis. They discuss how the impacts of the Great Recession led him to become a community activist and inspired him to work on issues like economic opportunity and criminal justice reform. Lewis talks about his role advising Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, one of the most influential Democrats in Congress, and the decision to run for office himself. Tune in to our first episode of 2023 for an important conversation for anyone concerned about getting good people to enter politics and for Lewis' advice to young activists who dream of inspiring change.
