August 2019’s Watch Moment is Lindsay Singer. Lindsay Singer was born and raised in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan where her passion for policy and advocacy formed. From there, she attended the University of Michigan, receiving her bachelor’s in public policy with a focus on racial and social injustices. Go Blue!! Lindsay then completed her Master’s in urban pedagogy at the University of Chicago. She now spends her days teaching third grade bilingual students in the amazing Back of the Yards Community.

My favorite badass lady: I think right now it’s a tie between RBG and AOC. I love a strong woman who speaks her mind, is proud of her identity and works tirelessly to create a more equitable world.

The best book I’ve read recently: I read great picture books with my students every day but I spend most of my summers reading all the amazing books I don’t have time for during the school year. I LOVE getting book recommendations from others, so please send me your favorites! (I’m serious! My email is [email protected] and I am anxiously awaiting your replies!)

July 2019’s Watch Moment is Tanya Nathan. Tanya Nathan is a native to Colorado, and is currently a private political consultant. Prior to becoming a consultant, Tanya worked on multiple national political campaigns, and in her spare time, is a trainer for the National Demographic Training Committee.

My favorite badass lady: my mother, Dr. Karin Dittrick Nathan.

The best career advice I have ever received: from Kelly Cutrone’s book, If you Have to Cry: Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You, it is “when you’re following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you, even if they mostly slam at first.”
