In 2015, Jackie Augustine lost her bid for mayor of Geneva by just 14 votes. Then, she dusted herself off and launched a 501c3 called BluePrint Geneva, designed to create new solutions for old problems. The organization has worked on environmental and economic justice, from composting to a food cooperative.
Augustine joins us to discuss why it can be so difficult to see old problems in new ways -- and how to pull together diverse groups to make change.
