Weekly Roundup – Michael Tubbs, Lateefah Simon, Neil deGrasse Tyson,

Happy Wednesday! Let’s see what our speakers are up to this week!


When the last vote was tallied, two of our speakers were elected to serve their communities! Michael Tubbs is now the first African-American, and youngest person, to be elected Mayor of Stockton, CA!  Over in the Bay Area, Lateefah Simon was elected to the BART Board of Directors – a post that impacts the lives of working commuters in the community. Congratulations to both of these political rising stars!
