Representative Joe Cunningham (SC-1) is our latest guest on "#UnitingCharleston," a new podcast series from Meeting Charleston and Holy City Sinner. The episode is available to download and stream now.
This new series features Meeting Charleston creators Nicole and Mark Gordon and me sitting down with local activists, business owners, influencers, elected officials, and emerging leaders who want their voices heard during this unprecedented time in our city and country's history. We hope to have discussions that will educate the community on how to combat racism and work together to unite Charleston in the fight for equality.
