Join us for a 45-minute conversation between two Virginia public servants: Senator Jennifer McClellan, a Democrat who is running for Governor in 2021, and Senator Jen A. Kiggans, a first-term Republican representing parts of Norfolk and Virginia Beach.
They will talk about how they forged their ideals, why they believe in politics as a strategy for change, how they understand women's issues, and their dreams for a more equitable collective future. The event will be moderated by Sarah McConnell, host and executive producer of Virginia Humanities' weekly radio show, With Good Reason.
This is the second event for a short series of virtual conversations titled “To Dwell in Possibility: Virginia Women Remaking the World." Thanks to the financial support of educator Dr. Melanie J. Biermann, the series will honor the legacy of Rosel Schewel, a political and civil rights activist from Lynchburg who was the longest-serving member of the board of Virginia Humanities.
