Afternoon Tea With Maya Wiley The Betches Sup Podcast

    • Politics

On this week’s Afternoon Tea, Sami is joined by civil rights activist, MSNBC legal analyst, and New York City mayoral candidate Maya Wiley. They start with a chat about what inspired Maya to run for mayor and the exceptional challenges we face in a pandemic. Maya tells us what her top priorities would be in office, which leads to a conversation about rising housing prices and the need for programs to help marginalized communities recover. They discuss the prospect of being the city’s first female mayor, and why it’s so important to address job loss among women in the last year. They talk about the impact of women of color in civil rights activism (including how Maya’s parents inspired her success) with some stories about how to achieve genuine progress with policing. They also explain why ranked choice voting (which will be used in this year’s mayoral election) is a better way to select our leaders and preserve democracy. Finally, it’s time for the Four Questions, which leads to a conversation about a warm, sunny vacation in Saint Lucia with Beyonce and James Baldwin.
