As a political science student at North Carolina Central University, Reggie McCrimmon read about Washington every day. So it was a natural for him to look for a job at NCCU alum Rep. G.K. Butterfield’s D.C. office. The pay isn’t great, the work quarters are cramped and late nights happen. But McCrimmon says it’s a great start.

  • Virginia's newly-elected openly transgender state representative: Discrimination is a disqualifier

    Virginia Democrat Danica Roem, the US’s first openly transgender state representative, gave a thank-you speech following the announcement of her win on Tuesday, November 7. She beat Bob Marshall, who had served in Virginia’s House of Delegates since 1992. Marshall introduced a “bathroom bill” earlier in the year, requiring people to use only the restroom that matched their biological sex. The bill was not passed. This video shows Roem’s victory speech at the election night watch party. “To every person who’s ever been singled out, who’s ever been stigmatized, who’s ever been the misfit… This one’s for you,” Roem said to a crowd of cheering supporters.
