In our 81st episode, we sit down for the second time with Eunisses Hernandez (@EunissesH) to hear about her new campaign door-knocking through North East Los Angeles. We discuss the inspiration behind Eunisses’ decision to run for political office, including the Great Recession, as well as the conditions that make it next to impossible for too many elderly workers in her community to retire. We also talk about gentrification in “NELA,” including by mural erasure, which tramples over historic efforts by communities there to grow and sustain Latinx political power. If and when elected, Eunisses will be only the second woman to represent Council District One in its nearly 100 years as an office at L.A. City Council.
