Naomi Sayers - Ellected Ep. 23

Naomi Sayers - Ellected Podcast
In episode 23 of Ellected host Sarah Elder-Chamanara talks with multi-multi-hyphenate lawyer, feminist, advocate, mentor, political candidate Naomi Sayers.

Naomi and Sarah talk about the process of political parties vetting candidates and how it doesn't work, how it could change so that more women and people actually run, how she ultimately ended up running as an independent (spoiler that isn't surprising - the system needs to be rebuilt because it doesn't work but does continue to work for anyone who isn't a white man who has been planning his campaign since birth), changing narratives and more.
