Inside the Candidate Experience with Stacey Abrams, Ashlee Marie Preston, & Nelini Stamp

Welcome to our CANDIDATES TELL ALL episode, powered by Black women! Running for office is an incredibly strenuous experience. Why do candidates do it, and how do they keep themselves grounded along the way?

Esteemed guests join us today to dish about candidacy and all that it entails: Stacey Abrams (Democratic candidate for Governor of Georgia) tells us how she stays energized on the campaign trail and what her favorite TV shows are, Ashlee Marie Preston (the first transgender candidate to run for state office in California) tells us about what she learned when taking on the establishment from the inside, and Nelini Stamp (Working Families Party National Organizing Director) shares about how she takes care of herself and what it takes to select and support great candidates nationwide.

With the 2018 US midterm elections upon us, Healing Justice Podcast brings you the SURVIVING ELECTIONS miniseries to help us all survive this political cycle together. Learn more & check out the upcoming episode list at www.healingjustice.org/elections
