5.2: A New Home for Democrats with Kirk Green


On this episode, host Lynda Woolard continues her efforts to demystify state Democratic Party politics by speaking with Kirk Green, a long-time party official, a current DSCC member for District 69 in Baton Rouge, and an educator who wears many hats in his teachers’ union. We discuss the 2020 party leadership elections, the previous and current state party administrations, and what needs to happen to move us forward.
