Three generations of a politically active family explore the nexus of politics and poetry.
Lisa Campbell is a 30-year Brand & Digital Strategist. A political activist, candidate, and poetry fan — Leaning forward, opting in, persisting onward, and working for equality.
Ron Campbell — a glance back includes a 40-year career in healthcare administration. A quick look ahead — public health advocate and cheerleader for the next generation of politicians, poets, family, and friends.
Lexi Hunter is a creative, feminist, political activist, singer/songwriter, and musician with a passion for intellectual conversation. She is also the composer of all the music and our theme song, “Take Flight”.
