Community Activist and Candidate Jen Perelman

Jen Perelman, who recently ran in the Democratic Primary for the US House of Representatives representing Florida’s 23rd Congressional district, stops in to talk about her campaign and her community work. Though Jen ran against a popular incumbent, she managed to secure nearly 28% of the vote, coming in with 20,721 votes in her favor. The incumbent was Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is one of the more popular and powerful members of the Democratic caucus within the House.

Jen spends a lot of time working for her community in the Miami area. She has worked with the Juvenile Justice Committee, the League of Women Voters in Broward County, the Democratic Women's Club of West Broward, the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida, the Broward County Bar Association, the Sunrise Movement of South Florida, and the Mobile School Pantry. As a lawyer, she has donated many hours of pro bono work to Probation Station, which helps people on probation as they transition out of the system.

Spend an interesting hour listening to a community activist who really puts it on the line and walks the talk.
