Renitta Shannon

In this episode I talk with Georgia State Representative Renitta Shannon about the accelerating and ongoing assault on reproductive rights and the efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade.

This conversation with Renitta inspired me to do more interviews on the subject of abortion rights so keep an eye out for more on this critically important subject.

Renitta Shannon defeated a four-term conservative Democrat incumbent with a bold progressive message in 2016. In January 2017, she was sworn into the Georgia State House of Representatives, representing the 84th district. 

Representative Shannon utilizes her impactful public platform to fight stigmas and create legislation for marginalized communities. Her experience in community organizing work around economic, racial, and gender justice equipped her to serve in the Georgia State House of Representatives.
