EJ Juárez on How to Get Equal Representation in our Government
Despite Washington’s progressive access to voting, we have some of the country’s worst levels of equal representation in local government–meaning the racial demographics of elected officials are disproportionate to the racial and cultural makeup of our communities. Amplify is a movement-building organization that seeks out people with a progressive vision and helps them run for office. They train candidates how to run a campaign and give free technical support after they win. Amplify’s Executive Director, EJ Juárez, shares how he goes about his work with KBCS News Director, Yuko Kodama.
