EPISODE 34 – GODFREY SANTOS PLATA, AD 53

In our thirty-fourth episode, we connect with Godfrey Santos Plata, a queer, Filipino-American renter from Koreatown and first-time candidate for public office who just capped off one of the best races to watch in Los Angeles this election season. Jeffrey talks with us about he and his family’s migration to the United States when he was four years old, the structure and power wielded by the California legislature in L.A. politics, what inspired him to run for office to represent his community, and the power of storytelling when inviting non-white communities to the political arena. A truly galvanizing session for listeners, especially those rooting for the workers of Los Angeles.
