Maggie (she/her) identifies as a straight single mom, a teacher and a student. I spoke with Maggie the day after the election was called for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. She talks about the uncertainty of waiting for election results, and the joy of celebrating on the streets of New York City. Maggie discusses becoming politically aware during the past four years, her journey from complacency to advocacy, and finding her voice while fighting for her beliefs and the rights of others. She also discusses coming to terms with systemic racism in the US, recognizing white privilege, learning to live as an active anti-racist.
