69 | Season 5: Senator Tammy Duckworth (with Model Majority Pod)
Welcome to Season 5 of Rock the Boat! In Season 5 we highlight Asian Americans who are challenging the status quo in the world of Government, Politics, Civic Engagement, and Advocacy. We are proud to be partnering with the Model Majority podcast to bring you a short season of incredible guests. Today’s guest is Senator Tammy Duckworth. She is the first Thai American woman elected to Congress. She is the first woman with a disability elected to Congress, and she is the first Senator to give birth while in office.
We hope these conversations can inspire you to vote this November, help remind your friends and family to vote, and maybe even inspire you to get involved in your local community.
