Streets Dept Podcast – SN 2, EP 10: Eliminating Poverty, A Conversation with PA State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta

April 12, 2019

So honored this week to welcome Pennsylvania State Representative Malcolm Kenyatta to the podcast! Malcolm Kenyatta is a 3rd generation Philly activist (like y’all, his grandfather ran for mayor against Frank Rizzo.) And on November 6th, 2018, he became the first openly gay person of color elected to statewide office in PA.

In today’s episode, I talk with Rep. Kenyatta about the challenges of the PA State House and about his work to help eliminate poverty in the state. And as an elected Democrat, we end by exploring some of the current 2020 Democratic presidential candidates and how he thinks the Dems could take back the White House.

Check out my conversation with Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta below, or on any major podcast streaming platform by searching “Streets Dept Podcast”!
