Please join us this Tuesday at 6pm on Transpositive PDX on KBOO Community Radio for Transpositive PDX as we talk with Paige Kreisman, a transgender woman and lobbyist with the DSA who is running for Oregon State House District 42. Kreisman was raised in rural North Carolina in "an abusive, transphobic, evangelical baptist home."  At the age of 17 she join the army.  After serving in the military for three years she was forced out by the Trump administration's ban on  transgender military personell.  She moved to Oregon where she attended school.

Paige describes herself as "an organizer, activist, and legislative advocate."  She currently serves as the electoral and legislative co-chair of the Portland Democratic Socialists of America and is a board member of Portland Tenants United.

In compliance with FCC regulations requiring equal time for candidates for political office, State Representative Rob Nosse was offered equal time on Transpositive, an offer which he accepted.  Representative Nosse will be on Transpositive on Tuesday, December 3.
