D.C. Councilmember Brianne Nadeau - "If you want to get things done, you want to work with local government"
Deeper Social Studies
Councilmember Brianne Nadeau represents Ward 1 on the Council of the District of Columbia where she serves as the chair for the Committee on Human Services. We talk about her career and work to end homelessness, the difficulty of building consensus, and what students and teachers should know about local government.
With the Council and staff working from home, this latest edition of Hearing the Council was recorded via Zoom call and Facebook Live. The topic for the full show: COVID, how the Council is responding, how it's affecting Councilmember Nadeau's constituents, and the impact on her personally. And to top it all off, an unexpected announcement...that she's expecting a baby girl in September.
