My guest for today is sixteen-year-old activist Madison Kimrey. According to Wikipedia, “Madison Kimrey is a political activist from Burlington, North Carolina. Her focuses include youth involvement in politics, the humane treatment of animals, and women’s rights. She has also been involved with petitions, including a petition to meet with North Carolina governor Pat McCrory. She spoke at a Moral Mondays event in North Carolina, and at the ‘We are Woman’ rally in Washington DC. Kimrey’s first encounter with activism was in Jacksonville, when a same-sex couple had to pay extra for a family membership at the ‘Hands-On Children’s Museum’ because the museum argued they weren’t ‘really a family.’ After she returned to North Carolina, Kimrey started to notice Pat McCrory and started going to “Moral Monday” protests. Kimrey is also the author of the blog ‘Functional Human Being,’ which contains a collection of political writings, opinions, personal insights and occasional accompanying music video.” And today I’ve got her on the show to talk about her activism.
