The author of ten novels for young adults and children, Melissa Walker, got involved in politics in 2016 as a leader at The States Project, a left-leaning political group focusing on state legislative races. Last year, The States Project spent nearly $60 million in races in five states with some key wins. In her role, Walker gathers people to share stories about how they can pool their resources and change the balance of power in state legislatures. She joined NY1’s Errol Louis for a discussion about how she suddenly found herself getting involved in politics, the success of The States Project, and why state legislative campaigns matter but are often overlooked.
