How To Citizen with Baratunde
How To Citizen with Baratunde
Making Our Presence Felt (with Angela Lang and Quentin Palfrey)
Baratunde digs into the feeling of disconnect and neglect felt by the black community in Milwaukee during the 2016 election and learns from Angela Lang, Executive Director of Black Leaders Organizing Communities (BLOC MKE). They are changing what it means to get people politically engaged in their community, and it doesn’t start with knocking on doors, begging for votes two months before an election! Quentin Palfrey also weighs in on how data scientists and lawyers are uniting on the ground to stop voter suppression, especially targeting communities of color.  Show Notes + Links We are grateful to Angela Lang and Quentin Palfrey for joining us.  Follow @angela_lang and @blocbyblocMKE on Twitter. You can learn more about the BLOC MKE at and in this press piece here.  Follow @qpalfrey and @protectthevote on Twitter.

It makes a huge difference with the algorithmic overlords! HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW. ACTIONS FOR THIS EPISODE.  INTERNAL ACTIONS (Actions that help you reflect and explore your emotions and experiences related to these topics or personal actions that don’t involve others) What does it mean for your community to thrive? This is the question BLOC asks the people of Milwaukee, and we want you to answer it for yourself. Yes, it could be speedbumps. It is probably more. Think about it. Write it down.  Real change starts by doing the hard internal work. Let’s keep it up! In June, many of us participated in Black Lives Matter protests, posted BLM messages on our instagrams and bought all the books on how to be anti-racist. Have you read the books, continued to share content from organizations, activists, artists, and business owners within the Black community since then? Time to revisit and re-engage.  EXTERNAL ACTIONS (Public actions that require relationships and interaction with others)  Support BLOC MKE As a grassroots organization, they need our support to be able to go deep in engaging their community in and out of election cycles. You can give to their non-partisan or partisan arm at  Volunteer to be a Voter Guardian in Milwaukee.  BLOC MKE is training people to monitor the polls for intimidation and are trained to de-escalate situations in lieu of calling the police. You can message them if you’d like to be trained and help ensure people feel free and safe to cast their ballots. Contact them at and mention Voter Guardian and How to Citizen in the subject line.  Volunteer to be a poll worker.  Sign up to be a poll worker through Voter Protection Corp at The more poll workers the better to help reduce long lines.  ------------------------------------------------------ If you take any of these actions, share that with us - Mention Making Our Presence Felt in the subject line.

Art Juice: A podcast for artists, creatives and art lovers
Art Juice: A podcast for artists, creatives and art lovers
Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
Let's get positive! Upbeat stories to lift our spirits [93]
Back in March, as we all went into lockdown, we speculated about how the pandemic would affect artists. (see episode 66) This week, we are revisiting the topic to find out. The episode was prompted by Cherrie Trelogan, who asked if we knew of any positive lockdown stories and we both rubbed our hands in glee because we know of too many to list in just one hour!  Our discussion begins with our own situations, and as seems to be customary, we find ourselves in very different places. Lockdown has left Alice feeling a little out of sorts, although new ideas are bubbling up. Meanwhile, Louise has resolved what she will do with her Ted Hughes paintings and this has given her new energy and focus. But going beyond ourselves, we share just a few of the positive stories we know including fundraisers, books, virtual events, online sales, and the surprising success of art supply retailers. The conversation is really uplifting and just proves that, as creatives, we are better placed than anyone to make a go of things in tough times. We also answer a listener question about gallery relations - "what to do when a gallery returns your work?" - and Louise shares an inspiring letter.
