Odessa Kelly

In the first episode of Season Three, Kim Baldwin chats with Odessa Kelly, co-founder and Executive Director of Stand Up Nashville, a non-profit community organization that fights for working families. A Nashville native, Odessa is a graduate of Stratford High School, Tennessee State University (BA) and Cumberland University (MPS). Prior to co-founding Stand Up Nashville, she worked as a civil servant for Metro Parks & Recreation for 14 years, leading at Napier Community Center. Most recently, Odessa is the first person recruited by Justice Democrats for the 2022 Congressional election cycle.

Join us for a conversation about the “stranger danger” of Amazon, fighting to ensure Metro government looks like the people it represents, and the pivotal moment Nashville began to lose its soul.
