Topic: How to develp an independent community

Host LaShawn Allen-Muhammad and Malik Greene welcome Kevin Tarpley and talk about how to develop an independent community.

Alderman Kevin Tarpley, the first African-American elected in Somerville, sponsored and helped push through a living wage? ordinance in his first term. Kevin has shown solidarity with many trade union struggles, both on the picket line and in City Hall, and has organized Ward 2 residents and local businesses to negotiate for mixed-use development and affordable housing. He was backed by SEIU 285, Ironworkers Local 7, Carpenters Local 218, Firemen and Oilers Local 3, and the Allied Painters Council.
