Join us for the last episode of Season 2 as we chat with Ally Coll, President and Co-Founder of The Purple Campaign. Ally shares how she became interested in politics and saw the power of grassroots organizing before law school (hint: Ally worked for Obama before he was President Obama), why she chose not to write on to law review or apply to clerkships during law school (hint: upon graduation she went to work for Hillary Clinton's legal team), why she chose to share her #MeToo story in the Washington Post, and how this ultimately led her to found the Purple Campaign, a non-profit organization whose mission is to address workplace harassment. Ally also discusses her recent testimony on Capitol Hill in support of the Judiciary Accountability Act, which would apply certain civil rights and employee protection laws to judicial branch employees. Although this concludes Season 2, we're not going far. Stay tuned for our mental health awareness collaboration, which will be released as a series of episodes in May!
