Carol Chumney on "The Arena"

On this week’s 51%, we speak with former Tennessee state legislator and judge Carol Chumney about the lessons she’s learned from her long-running political career, and the barriers that often keep women from the political arena. We also hear from the founder of a Florida nonprofit supporting homeless youth, and learn about a new financial literacy initiative in Vermont aimed at helping survivors of domestic violence. 

Guests: Carol Chumney, Shelby County Circuit Court Judge and author of The Arena: One Woman’s Story; Vicki Sokolik, founder of Starting Right, Now, and author of If You See Them: Young, Unhoused, and Alone in America

51% is a national production of WAMC Northeast Public Radio in Albany, New York. Jesse King is our producer and host. Our associate producer is Jody Cowan, and our theme is “Lolita” by the Albany-based artist Girl Blue.
