A few months ago our friend LaMeia Reddick, who is an inspiring woman herself, told us the story of Jalana Lewis, Lindell Smith's campaign manager for the 2016 Municipal Election. With the help of Jalana, Lindell became the first black counsellor elected in nearly 20 years.
We had such a great time working on this passion project. We both come from a journalism background, and story telling is what we love.
We were truly inspired by her work during this campaign, and equally inspired by the work she continues to do ( http://m.thecoast.ca/…/jalana-lewis-cares-about-he…/Content… )
