EP 8 – Nelson Roman on Passion, Authentic Politics, and Making Shit Happen

We are excited to welcome City Councilman Nelson Roman of Holyoke Massachusetts to the show. Nelson is a force to be reckoned with because he’s something we rarely see in politics. He’s authentic.

As an openly gay, HIV positive, Latino  , he’s a fantastic example of overcoming adversity. Check out the show and get an inside perspective into how he got into politics, how he dealt with being homeless, why he’s so passionate about serving others and more. Only on #R3SET Live.
