EPISODE 5 - GALENTINE’S <3 | WE ASK JULIE OLIVER IF SHE’S RUNNING AGAIN | WE GUSH ON TX SHEROES AND “BLACK GIRL MAGIC” | WE REMEMBER THE MOMENTS THAT MADE US ACTIVISTS
On a very special Episode 5 of THE RABBLE, we embrace the Galentine’s reason for the season — ladies celebrating ladies. This episode is totally different than our usual format. Instead of "Political FMK" or "Did Y'all Know?" we each take a moment to interview one of our Texas lady heroes and learn more about their story. We also look back on the turning points in our own lives that inspired us to activism.
THIS WEEK’S GUESTS:
Shellie Hayes-McMahon, Annie’s List (former Cedar Park city council candidate)
Julie Oliver, former Congressional candidate
Dedra Davis, newly elected Texas District Court 270 Judge, Harris County
SH*T TO DO:
Tell your shero why you think she’s amazing, whether that's AOC, RGB or your own mommy. Imagine how that will feed her soul and keep her going!
COME TO OUR GALENTINE'S DAY PARTY:
Bring your bestie to Better Half Coffee & Cocktails in Austin on Wednesday, February 13 from 6-8pm and let's celebrate Galentine's Day!
