On the first episode of 2018, Mattie talks with with Glynda Carr, an advocate and political strategist who co-founded Higher Heights for America - an organization dedicated to expanding the civic participation of black women. She talks on the show today about the national ripple effect of black women electing Doug Jones, the unique challenges black women have when they decide to run for office and why we could see an unprecedented amount of elected black female leaders in 2018. “Frankly, the 23 million black women in this country are being underrepresented and underserved,” Carr says. --- The 23% is brought to you by Governing.
