Helen Gym, First Asian-American Woman on Philadelphia City Council, Touts Community Investment - NBC News

my article for NBC Asian America re Helen Gym
I think the other lesson here is about the difference between political power and a grassroots movement. Political power was not the first thing we sought. Instead, we were really trying to build a stronger base to highlight the voices of different communities across the city. That's how you change things: when a collective movement builds and earns political power rather than just grasps for it.
