Today on the podcast we’re talking about the 2017 legislative session in Georgia. Instead of focusing on the focusing on the mess that this session was, instead we’re focusing on the victories: the campus rape cover up bill and the map rigging bill. In this episode we’re also catching up with Mareshia Rucker, a political activist who started out at her local high school.
