Description

On this week’s Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, throws open the mics to two UofL alumni from opposite sides of the political spectrum, OJ Oleka, PhD (’10) and Terrance Sullivan, J.D. (’09, ’12) co-founders of AntiRacismKY, a coalition focused on rooting out institutional racism in Kentucky state and local government policy. OJ Oleka is a Republican who graduated from UofL with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and a minor in political science, and is now president of the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities. Democrat Terrance Sullivan, executive director of the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights, graduated from UofL with a bachelor’s degree in political science, law and public policy, and a minor in economics and later earned his JD from UofL's Brandeis School of Law. He was a Thurgood Marshall CLEO Fellow and a Leadership Louisville Bingham Fellow in 2015.

They came together in the wake of Breonna Taylor’s murder to found AntiRacismKY as a coalition of hundreds of Kentuckians who want to finally deal with the problem of institutional racism in Kentucky.
