THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR:

Gregory McKelvey came into Portland’s spotlight as an activist. More recently, he’s made a name for himself as a political strategist: the 27-year-old ran Sarah Ianarrone’s 2020 mayoral campaign and now works as a political consultant at Praxis Political. He’s also the chief of campaigns at Zealous, an organization that supports public defenders in moving their advocacy outside of court. He says his mission in Portland has been to fuse activism and politics, and he joins us to discuss his journey.
