Connections: Jackie Augustine, founder of BluePrint Geneva

May 28, 2021

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.
