Bisexual Arab-American woman. Senior policy advisor with the U.S. Department of Labor. Steampunk enthusiast. All of these terms describe Day Al-Mohamed. In this interview she discusses her path to DC, working on the Affordable Care Act, and fighting for a trans-inclusive Employee Non-Discrimination Act. Highlights include:
- why you shouldn't go into "disability policy" as a career,
- what not to wear to a day of lobbying in Washington,
- how to get disparate groups to work together without killing each other.
I apologize for all the background noise. This interview was done during VONA at UC Berkeley, which was under construction at the time.
