3.10: The League of Extraordinary Women with Liz Leger


On the final episode of season three, Liz Leger from Avoyelles Sleeves Up joins host Lynda Woolard to talk about organizing in rural parishes and small towns, whether for electoral politics or community engagement. Her team’s organizing work in Central Louisiana is a great blueprint for how to put progress above partisan ends, how to build relationships in more conservative communities, and how to leverage the local media to accomplish big goals.
