Week 8: The Power is in the People: Keeping Community a Priority in Politics and Public ServiceToo often politics forgets its purpose. It has become a circus of headlines, polls and drama that has people wondering if the government is working for or against them. In this session, we will talk with Addie Whisenant who formerly ran African-American communications for President Barack Obama and then for various clients at San Francisco based firm, Bully Pulpit. She will discuss why it was always important to include the people and community in the narratives around issues. We’ll also discuss how to stay rooted in community and make it a priority as one climbs the political ladder - staying true to yourself, your position and your community.Guest: Addie Whisenant (Founder and Principal, AMW Strategies; Former Senior Director, Bully Pulpit Interactive; Former White House Senior Director, African American Media)
