Bernie Sanders during the turbulent 2016 Democratic presidential primary, Nina Turner is an insightful advocate and agent for social change. Today, she serves as president of Our Revolution, an organization dedicated to empowering progressive leaders and elevate political consciousness.When she served in the Ohio Senate, Turner was known as a fierce advocate, garnering recognition and praise from elected leaders across the political spectrum. She maintained an uncanny ability to both unify opposing viewpoints and challenge political leaders to live up to their highest selves. Her political experience as an elected member of the Cleveland City Council and a strategic leader of the Ohio Democratic Party afford her a unique understanding of government processes and how to overcome partisan perspectives.Outside of the political arena, Turner has decades of experience as a college professor and motivational speaker. She routinely travels across the country to inspire action and instill hope in crowds of more than 20,000.
