“It is important to listen as well as give your opinion on things because it's important both ways.” Lisa Zanville Effective community work requires bringing together the expertise and skills of different people to focus towards common goals. This collaboration is important for community outreach and engagement. Our guest today, Lisa Zanville has been working with various organizations that focus on community service and says that much more is achieved when there are organized efforts towards helping the community. Lissa Mozur Zanville has more than 30 years of experience in the non-profit, public, and private sectors, including government affairs, media relations, crisis management, community relations, strategic planning, spokesperson training, and stakeholder management. A graduate of UCLA, Zanville worked for the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C., the California Democratic Party, the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, the California State Assembly, and Pacific Bell (now AT&T) where she was Director of Media Relations and primary spokesperson. Lissa started LMZ Communications in 1990. The company provided spokesperson training to corporate, sports, entertainment, and political clients such as Toyota, Microsoft, City of Los Angeles, Knott's Berry Farm, IBM, Claritin, Ultimate Fighting Championship, and the United States Equestrian Federation. Immediately before joining Los Angeles Trial Lawyers' Charities in 2016, Zanville was with the PHASE ONE Foundation, a non-profit that supports early cancer research and clinical trials. For nine years she has served as the sole staff and Executive Director of this $16 million foundation. Zanville lives in Los Angeles with her husband Stuart. In today's episode, Lissa will be telling us about Los Angeles Trial Lawyers Charities and the different ways in which they give back to the community. Listen in! Contacts: Website: https://www.latlc.org  We started about 15 years ago and it was started by a small group of plaintiff attorneys who felt together they could do so much more than they were as individuals. [3:22] We supported organizations that were in Los Angeles, and there were a few volunteer projects and over the years, it has developed into a large group, making a difference. [4:25] We believe in helping the community in five areas which are children, education, survivors of abuse, persons with disabilities, and homelessness. [4:43] The first way we help is that we raise money, and over the years, we've given over $5 million in both grants, goods, and gifts to the community. [4:59] We also do it in volunteer projects where we've done over 6000 volunteer hours working in projects that make a difference. [5:58] We also have signature events where we give out all kinds of things to make individual families a little better by making a difference for them. [6:31] We also have the great trike giveaway where we give out adaptive tricycles to children with disabilities. [7:21] We also started something called the day of dignity for the homeless where we provide them services that they want to feel the kind of love and dignity that we want them to feel. [8:05] Some of our favourite volunteer projects are the ones where we talk to and deal with people. [10:24] During the pandemic, we decided to do a St. Patrick's Day zoom event where we had interaction and felt face to face with people. [10:33] In every community, some organizations try to make a change. [14:42] Commercial Break. [16:05] Our event has evolved because we try to identify the individual needs by listening as well as projecting what we think people want so that we could make things happen. [18:15] It is important to listen as well as give your opinion on things because it's important both ways. [22:08] We want to help other plaintiffs, attorneys and local organizations mixed where they'll be able to help their local charities. [23:09] We've learned in the last year and a half that we all have to pivot, think outside the box and do what needs to be done to help the [25:03] …………………..…..

Brnovich v Democratic National Committee, (2021), was a United States Supreme Court case related to voting rights established by the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA), and specifically the applicability of Section 2's general provision barring discrimination against minorities in state and local election laws in the wake of the United States Supreme Court decision in Shelby County v Holder in 2013 which removed the preclearance requirements for election laws for certain states that had been set by Sections 4(b) and 5. The case deals with two of Arizona's election policies, including one law targeting ballot harvesting that was passed after Shelby County prior to the 2016 elections. The Supreme Court ruled in a 6–3 decision in July 2021 that neither of Arizona's election policies violated the VRA nor had a racially discriminatory purpose. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

The Supreme Court's ruling in a Voting Rights Act case Thursday may appear modest in scope and subdued in rhetoric, but it will have a sweeping impact — undercutting efforts to challenge a slew of new laws Republican-led states have passed imposing new restrictions on the ballot, lawyers and civil rights activists said. "It will have a devastating impact on our ability, and other civil rights groups' ability, to protect the rights of voters through the courts,” said NAACP President Derrick Johnson. The 6-3 loss for voting rights advocates also resurfaced second-guessing of the Democratic National Committee's decision to file the suit on which the justices ruled, targeting Arizona's longstanding refusal to allow out-of-precinct voting and a 2016 law banning collection of mail-in ballots through a practice critics call “ballot harvesting.” Raghu Manavalan is the host of POLITICO's Playbook.

On January 20, 1973, Richard Nixon was riding high. Sworn into office for his second term of the U.S. presidency, he'd just won a massive landslide victory, capturing 49 states and more than 60 percent of the popular vote. His stunning diplomatic move to reopen relations with China, combined with his efforts to negotiate an end to the war he inherited in Vietnam, made him an enormously consequential president. He was popular, brilliant, and seemingly headed for an FDR-like legacy. 20 months later, Nixon resigned in disgrace, his presidency shattered by his conspiracy to cover up the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate complex during the 1972 election. Nixon, a complicated man overcome by the urges of insecurity and ego was brought low by his own design: a secret and ubiquitous taping system that recorded an enormous volume of White House conversations served as the smoking gun that forced his resignation. Journalist Michael Dobbs just published a stunning new book into the drama inside the White House as the Nixon presidency collapsed under the weight of scandal. In “King Richard, Nixon and Watergate: An American Tragedy,” Dobbs plumbs the psyche of our 37th president for fresh insight into his undoing. The book is a triumph: cinematic and scintillating, it pulls the curtain on the fight for survival within Nixon's staff. By using the tapes as a primary source material, Dobbs locks the reader in a shrinking room with Nixon and his aides, the walls closing in as reporters tie the president to the break-in. Michael joins host Joe Buccino for one of the most vivid episodes of the 18th Airborne Corps podcast to date. Anyone interested in conspiracy, the American presidency, or the workings of the White House will find insight in this episode. Also discussed are the ties between the Watergate break-in and subsequent cover-up and the catastrophically unpopular Vietnam War. Watergate was a critical moment in American history, one that has shaped the way Americans think about the federal government ever since. The build-up to the Iraq War, the January 6, 2020 insurrection, and the public response to COVID-19, all have their origin in Watergate.

Career paths and fostering community engagement with a JPMorgan Chase Leader   With a deep history in both the public and private sectors, Melinda Yee Franklin stepped into the role of community engagement and corporate responsibility executive for the west region at JPMorgan Chase in late 2020. In this conversation with Women on the Move’s Sam Saperstein, she talks about her career path and why she thinks the time is right for bold corporate community engagement. A longtime advocate for Asian Americans, Melinda also reminds us why we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage month in May.    Path from public to private sector Malinda’s interest in government and public policy started when she landed a college internship in D.C. with her hometown congressman from California. She began her career at a telecommunications consulting firm, and in less than five years found herself working at the White House—with stops along the way in civil rights advocacy, at the Organization of Chinese Americans, the Democratic National Committee, and on Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign.   She soon took on a senior role at the U.S. Department of Commerce, where she stayed for several years. “At that point I had been in D.C. for about 10 years, and I thought, wow, it's been a ride,” she tells Sam. “And to me, it was time to come home back to California. And that's what I did.” Her next stop was in San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown’s office, where she stayed for four years. At that point, she says, she decided she wanted to explore the private sector.   Melinda began that part of her career at a startup called Meet China that became Meet World Trade, doing international B2B work. “And then I took time off because I had a child, and still continued consulting with clients that were both public and private sector,” she recalls. “There was an opportunity to be able to work with United Airlines as the head of corporate and government affairs for the west region. And I felt like, yeah, that's a good job for me because that combines the skillsets I've learned in the public sector. It was a really good fit for me at the time, and I stayed at United for 14 years.”   She hopes her career journey is inspiring for women looking to make a big career change. Her advice is to think about all the skills you’ve acquired from different roles. “I think when you package yourself, for lack of a better term, or create the narrative of your journey, just think about how that translates into other things that are related, but not necessarily the same,” she says.   Fostering community engagement at JPMorgan Chase Melinda came to JPMorgan Chase in January to help launch the firm’s office of community engagement, which combines three vital functions within the corporate responsibility team: community re-investment, community partnerships, and the office of nonprofit engagement. She says the goal is to localize much of the office’s work of going into the communities and working with nonprofit leaders. “We’re really developing a narrative around what we're doing, how we're showing up into the community and working really closely with our philanthropy colleagues, as well as our government affairs colleagues, to really shine a light on the good work that JPMorgan Chase is doing,” she adds.   Post-pandemic, she says, she’s looking forward to helping rebuild small-business communities in cities such as San Francisco, where 50 to 60 percent of small businesses have disappeared since the start of the pandemic. “So how can we help to rebuild… these small businesses of color, women-owned businesses,” she says. “How can we really help them rise again?”

Democrats are in control of the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives for the first time in a decade. But to the new chair of the Democratic National Committee, it’s clear that the party’s brand is broken in a large swath of America.“I think what we have to do as a party is battle the damage to the Democratic brand,” Harrison, the former senate candidate, tells Molly Jong-Fast in the latest episode of The New Abnormal. “I experienced it on my own race, Lindsey [Graham] and his crew of dark money effectively labeled me as somebody who believed in defunding the police. My grandfather on my stepfather's side was in the Detroit police department for 40 years. So I don't believe in that. But they were able to do it because the Democratic brand had been so tarnished in South Carolina that people would believe anything. If they said, ‘Jamie kicked a puppy the other day,’ they would have believed it.” “It's not even just with Republicans, the Democrat brand with some of the folks who are core at the base of our party is not the greatest,” Harrison continues. “And so I want to spend a lot of time, energy, and effort understanding why the brand is where it is, what it is and how, and what we can do in order to improve it.” Especially in rural and red-state America, Harrison says: “We have to take credit and claim the things that we will have gotten done over the course of this next two years. We're going to do a lot for rural America. The American Rescue Plan has so much in there for rural communities across this country. And it will have a huge benefit, this infrastructure plan, when we get this done. The broadband component in it alone, will totally transform rural America.” “Those communities are also just as diverse as urban communities. We also need to make sure that we're listening to them,” he adds. “And then, in the end, we’ve got to deliver and I believe we can do those things. Not only will we grow our base, but I think we also persuade a few other folks to take a look at us.”If you haven't heard, every single week The New Abnormal does a special bonus episode for Beast Inside, the Daily Beast’s membership program. where Sometimes we interview Senators like Cory Booker or the folks who explain our world in media like Jim Acosta or Soledad O’Brien.

Have you heard the phrase “stick to beer”? It’s a version of an oft-cited phrase that people tell each other when one is veering away from their subject expertise. If you brew beer or write about the industry, you don’t need to share insight about other areas of life … let someone else who’s an expert do that. Stick to beer. In this episode, we aren’t venturing far away from beer, but Ben Self’s background lends itself to it. He’s our guest as co-founder of Kentucky’s West Sixth Brewing, but what came before and even recent years is of interest, too. Ben recently completed a run as chairman of the Kentucky Democratic Party and began a political career years ago by co-founding a progressive tech firm that led him to work with Howard Dean and the Democratic National Committee. This is relevant because while we don’t wade into hot button issues of politics, we do talk about what it means to win and lose and fight an uphill battle to turn a very red state blue. It may not be obvious right away, but you’ll hear me ask about how running a business can be similar when you’re trying to build trust with people you don’t know and convert customers to your brand in the same way a politician may want to find another vote. So trust me when I say we do “stick to beer,” but there’s a host of other things that have influenced Ben’s worldview, and that overlap can be fascinating.

On March 2, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee. The case centers on two of Arizona’s election rules: 1. Arizona does not count provisional ballots cast in person on Election Day outside of the voter’s designated precinct and 2. its ballot-collection law permits only certain persons (family and household members, caregivers, mail carriers, and elections officials) to handle another person’s completed early ballot. The DNC challenged the rules, arguing that both discriminate against racial minorities in Arizona. On appeal, the Supreme Court will consider whether both policies violate Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965—which prohibits nationally any election laws or policies that “results in a denial or abridgement of the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color”—and whether the second violates the 15th Amendment—which states that “the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” Chris Kieser of Pacific Legal Foundation, who wrote a brief in support of Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, and Sean Morales-Doyle of the Brennan Center, who wrote a brief in support of the DNC, explore the case and its potential implications in conversation with Jeffrey Rosen.

Jaime Harrison is one of the brightest young rising stars in the Democratic Party. Born and raised by a single mother in Orangeburg, South Carolina, educated at Yale and Georgetown Law, and mentored by legendary Palmetto State congressman Jim Clyburn, Harrison became the first African American chairman of his home state's Democratic Party in 2013, at the age of 37. After a stint as an Associate Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Harrison launched a campaign to topple incumbent South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham — a bid widely seen as a distant longshot at the outset, but that ultimately turned into one of the marquee races of the 2020 election cycle, with Harrison shattering all South Carolina fund-raising records with a $133 million haul. In the end, Graham beat back the upstart challenge, but Harrison's emergence as a national figure left no one surprised when President Biden chose him in January to be the new chairman of the DNC.In a conversation recorded as the Senate was rendering its verdict in Trump's historic second impeachment trial, Heilemann and Harrison delve into the short and long-term implications of Trump's acquittal for Republicans and Democrats alike, the existential questions it raises about our constitutional republic, and the inescapable racial dynamics at play in the terrible events of January 6.

Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean offers a long-view take on what’s needed in this pivotal moment as Joe Biden takes office. Dean talks about vaccines, prioritizing the important while attending to the urgent, and what unity might look like for our deeply divided country. Dean has studied democracies around the world, yet much of his adult life has been rooted in Vermont where he practiced family medicine before becoming the state's longest-serving Governor from 1991 - 2003. Dean ran for the Democratic nomination in the 2004 Presidential race, pioneering grassroots fundraising. Then, as chair of the Democratic National Committee from 2005 and 2009, his 50 state strategy played a key role in Barack Obama’s 2008 win. At 72, Dean teaches foreign policy at Yale’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and is as opinionated and clear thinking as ever.
