NPR Morning Edition: Veteran Democratic Strategist Is The First Black Woman To Lead EMILY's List
Hosted by: Steve Inskeep
Laphonza Butler is the first Black woman to lead the pro-abortion rights group EMILY's List. The group has been criticized for historically not doing enough to support Black women in politics.
It's a basic reality that people who run for office have to raise money to do that. It's considered especially tough for women of color. And a political group that works to elect hundreds of democratic women wants to address that. Laphonza Butler is the first Black woman to lead the group. She is a former union leader and Democratic strategist. And she spoke with our political correspondent Juana Summers on the NPR Politics Podcast.
