Jenn Pae, our VP of Trainings and Leadership Development, moderated a panel called “Sparkle or Shade: Let’s Get Real About Inclusive Politics,” which was focused on what it looks like to center the people that we say we’re working with and for — in our organizations, our campaigns, our communities, and our lives.
