In 2018, 32 year old Megan Hunt became the first woman to represent the 8th district in the Nebraska State Senate. In just a few months in office, Senator Hunt is changing the narrative in Nebraska politics, advocating for better wages and civil rights for all people in the state, and developing a following across the country.
In this podcast, Megan Hunt, the first openly LGBTQ person ever elected in Nebraska, talks about how the nonpartisan nature of Nebraska politics makes governing better in many ways and allows people to rally around issues that they may not focus on as much otherwise. She also talks about why we need more people to run for office in every district across the country and why everyone should take politics seriously in 2019 and beyond.
