Narratives like homelessness is normal and poverty is self-inflicted can as strong an adversary as any “free market” ideology. Our guest is lifelong activist, former Director of Cork Simon and now Independent Senator, Colette Kelleher.
Colette talks to us about her introduction to activism and her work in the Seanad. We discuss Traveller rights and combatting systemic racism. There’s also a look into the ideological mind-set of a Government that will not act to properly to address the Housing Crisis and their reasons for that.
Finally, Colette talks to us about resilience and why we simply must Keep Fighting. This is an inspirational and uplifting podcast.
