12/11: 22-year-old activist talks gender identity politics, platform on State of Mind

Dan Yorke State of Mind

Nika Lomazzo, activist and waitress by trade, will formally announce Tuesday that she is running as a Democrat for the District 8 Representative seat. She will face long-time incumbent Representative John Lombardi. Lomazzo joined Dan Yorke to discuss a recent Providence Journal article that focused on Lomazzo’s status as a transgender woman. While Lomazzo did answer questions about this part of her identity, she also expressed a want to focus on her platform. Lomazzo identifies as a member of the Progressive left and supports strengthening paid sick leave legislation, is in favor of 2- year free college tuition, but would like to see the benefit extended to vocational and technology programs, and is looking to address rising housing costs on Providence’s west side.
