How does 1 Million Madly Motivated Moms (1M4) track public policy and advocate for their cause of ending police violence and reducing harm in Black communities? Join Tansy McNulty, the Founder & CEO of 1M4 and Damola Ogundipe, the CEO & Co-Founder of Plural, to discuss how 1M4 uses Plural to track policy and advocate effectively.
Tansy McNulty is the Founder and CEO of 1 Million Madly Motivated Moms (1M4). 1M4 empowers Black Moms to end police violence by the year 2038 through legislative policy education, financial assistance to impacted families, and encouraging the next generation of Black youth to pursue roles in the justice system & politics with integrity. This type of activism and organizing requires that Black Moms protect their greatest weapon in the fight… their mental health. 1M4 gives Moms a place to air their frustrations with recurring police violence, create solutions that have measurable impact, and prioritize their mental health to maintain peace of mind despite the chaos of inequality. With a background in Corporate Supply Chain Management, emphasis on cost reduction and process improvement initiatives, Tansy is a problem solver who simply wants to save Black lives and create a more equitable justice system.
Damola Ogundipe is the Co-Founder and CEO of Plural (formerly Civic Eagle). Plural creates cutting-edge software to make it easy for public policy data to be discoverable, interpretable, and collaborative. Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Damola and his family immigrated to the US when he was six years old. From a young age, Damola was interested in global perspectives, politics, and how the world is governed. Frustrated by the lack of civic engagement in the US, Damola and his co-founders created Civic Eagle, leveraging public-access data to create easy ways for global citizens to engage and express their opinions on how they want to be governed.
