/Ashley Fairbanks — Reflections From Philadelphia

Ashley Fairbanks serves on our Advisory Board, heads up our Community Engagement Committee, is preparing a brand new radio show for us, and has done a bit of design work at the station as well. She’s also a badass designer and public artist, as well as a seasoned organizer.

Somehow, Ashley found time to serve as a delegate at last week’s Democratic National Convention, and we made sure to send her with a microphone. What she brought back was less a report on the politics and theater of the convention and more a meditation on coming of age under a Bush presidency, growing into adulthood during Obama’s two terms, and trying to find hope for this year’s election (which will fall on her 30th birthday).
