Ellie 2.0 Radio – December 7, 2020

It’s an Ellie’s Talking Head Show! We start out highlighting Poetic Justice, an Oklahoma nonprofit that teaches writing and poetry to women who are incarcerated. In lieu of The Big Interview, I talk about allyship and share stories of how a neighborhood in North Little Rock Arkansas showed unique support for a family that was the subject of a racist attack for having a Black Santa Claus. Other stories of allyship include support for a small bookstore owner in Bayonne, N.J. and a 29-year-old single man who adopted five siblings (age 4-11) who were in foster care. In my C-Block, I share about moving from downtown Minneapolis to rural Carver County MN, a far more conservative area where, I’m sure, I will be the first live transgender person most of my new friends will have met. It’s all a journey, everyone!
