Holding Space with Magical Wheelism

Apr 11, 2021

Throughout last year, derby folks filled their downtime with baking, gardening, and other kinds of socially distance-friendly skating. April "Jumpy McGee" Fournier (Maine RD, Team Indigenous) decided to pursue a long-held interest: public office! Last summer, she entered the race for one of Portland, Maine's City Councilor At-Large seats.

I caught up with Jumpy back then. I found out what a candidate's life is like, how derby's primed her for this new, exciting endeavor, and why we all need to do our part to create the world we want to see. {{Spoiler alert: Jumpy won!}} Enjoy!
