Tired of watching local government ignore their communities’ interests, five diverse female activists run for municipal office in Denver - one of the U.S.’s fastest gentrifying cities. A story about an engaged community outrunning the deep pockets of the political establishment, RUNNING WITH MY GIRLS demonstrates that building a new kind of political power is not just aspirational but possible.
October on WORLD focuses on the state of our democracy with a new film offering a rare inside look at the process to election day. Stories from the Stage returns for season 7. Plus, Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations continue and watch a special digital feature in commemoration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
