6.2: Hope and Associates with Nakita Shavers


This episode drops on the 18th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the Federal Flood that destroyed so much of New Orleans. Nakita Shavers, of the Dinerral Shavers Education Fund, Girls NOLA, and Boys NOLA, joins host Lynda Woolard to talk about how that historic tragedy impacted her personally and launched her journey into political activism. She goes on to share about the nonprofit work she does today in education and reproductive healthcare that fills in the gaps where our government and legislation fall short.
