This week we had a Medford City Councillor, an expert in SNAP, and a racial & criminal justice advocate.
Featured This Week:
Zac Bears, Medford City Council
Before becoming a city councillor, Zac Bears was the executive director of a small non-profit organization, PHENOM. He advocated for more funding for our K-12 public schools and our public colleges and universities, and testified at the State House in favor of more education funding, and fight alongside teachers, students and parent advocacy groups.
Anna Callahan, the show’s host, is the Director of The Incorruptibles, which trains people in a new model of political organizing. She is currently running for State Rep.
Becca Miller, SNAP/HIP
Becca Miller works at the Massachusetts Food System Collaborative as the manager of the Funding for Healthy Incentives Program campaign. Becca also serves on the Steering Committee of the Democratic Socialists of America’s nationwide ecosocialist working group, and is involved with local environmental organizing through Take Back the Grid and Boston DSA. When she’s not organizing, Becca loves to cook (preferably with local veggies), run, hike and spend time with friends.
Caroline Bays is President of the Board of Progressive Massachusetts and a town councilor in Watertown. She works on a wide variety of social, economic, and racial justice issues in Massachusetts. But after reading Michelle Alexander’s book, The New Jim Crow, she focused on criminal justice and advocated for reform in prisons. In particular she is an advocate for ending the practice of long term solitary confinement in Massachusetts and, for the last three years, she has been visiting a young man who is in a solitary confinement unit in Walpole.
