Chas Moore with the Austin Justice Coalition
In this episode of #MovementMakerTV, Terri interviews community activist, Chas Moore. Chas saw all of the energy created around big rallies and protests but was frustrated when there was no quantifiable outcome to those moments. He decided that he wanted to see a real change in both policy and legislature. He wants to create sustainable change that will affect lives for decades to come.    To be successful, Chas suggests winning. If you don’t win, you don’t create systematic change. But that’s not all. Even if you have a system in place, it doesn’t guarantee the system will be successful. You have to have the right people within the system to make it successful.     For more information about becoming a #MovementMaker, visit my website: https://terribwilliams.com/.

It is a #1 Amazon New Release and Best Seller. Cosmopolitan Magazine list it as the #6 non-fiction book of 2020. Get your own copy of “Find Your Fire” here! Episode Notes: Moderator/Host: Terri Broussard Williams, Founder, Movement Maker Tribe + Social Impact Strategist, Lobbyist Very important guests: Rina Shah is a Washington, DC based political adviser, social entrepreneur, and media contributor. Over the past decade, she’s been nationally and internationally-recognized as a political maven, reformer, and innovator – having advised nearly 25 political campaigns and initiatives, at various levels. Nowadays, she is the Founder of Republican Women for Biden and Co-Host of the political podcast, “Left Hook, Right Jab” set to launch next month.   Notable highlights in Shah's political career include senior leadership roles on two U.S. Presidential campaigns, and prior to that, half a decade on Capitol Hill as a senior aide in the offices of two Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives. In 2016, Rina Shah was elected as a Delegate to the 2016 Republican National Convention; however, due to statements she made about then-candidate Donald Trump during an appearance on FOX News, she was unjustly unseated by local party officials. After a high-profile battle through which she was reinstated as a Delegate by the RNC, the Washington Post dubbed her as “the poster girl for the #NeverTrump movement.” In August of 2016, Shah was tapped as Chief Spokesperson and one of the top strategists to Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin’s campaign. That same year, she was also honored to receive BMW automaker's 'Pay It 4Ward' award "for lifting others as she rises." Shah’s opinion editorials have been published in outlets spanning the globe. Next week, she will become a columnist at The Week. She is the Co-Founder and Emeritus Board Member of Women’s Public Leadership Network, and also a board member of four non-partisan non-profit organizations each aimed at getting more women into government and politics. Politico has named Shah as an Ambassador for their annual “Women Rule” summit two years in a row, and she was also a headlining speaker at the Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) “March for All Women” D.C. rally last year. Rina Shah is a member of the American Enterprise Institute's Leadership Network, Meridian International Center's Global Leadership Council, and recently joined the leadership team of The Lincoln Project’s “Lincoln Women” coalition. Shah frequently appears on-air at MSNBC and PBS, as well as internationally on Al Jazeera English & Arabic, to offer political analysis and guest commentary. She is a native of southern West Virginia and the proud daughter of immigrants from Uganda and India. Shah and her husband are parents of two daughters. Get your own copy of “Find Your Fire” here!
