Louise Snodgrass is a 25-year-old, progressive, working-class, queer person running in the state of South Dakota. She decided to run for office in early 2020 after the legislature pushed harsh anti-transgender legislation. Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, she has turned her campaign upside down and is using tools never before used by a campaign.
In this podcast, Louise talks about the stresses for young people and the LGBTQ+ community and how to be an advocate and ally. She talks about the divisions in South Dakota politics, the local needs of her district, and encouraging other young people to run for office.
