Find out more about Jill at their website Practice Make Progress.
We spoke about how Jill lives their values through their work and their business model. We also talked about how hard it is to start a new organization, and Jill pointed out that being an activist and starting a new organization are different skill sets and recommends new activists get involved with existing institutions. Activists need training, and Jill pointed out that our middle school history classes doesn’t teach us that activists like Rosa Parks were trained, long term activists with strategic aims.
Jill also loves dance parties and participated in one outside Ivanka Trump’s house last week.
