Conversations: Annette Taddeo

Conversations: June 28, 2020

In this episode of Miami Corona Project Conversations, artist Xavier Cortada meets with Senator Annette Taddeo to discuss the vulnerabilities of our state government in the time of coronavirus. She discusses what she thinks went wrong across Florida and Miami (now considered the epicenter of coronavirus), offers a hopeful message to her constituents, and shares how we can all do our part to overcome these times.

“I know we always hear… ‘You need to go out and vote like our life depends on it,'” she says. “This time, it’s all real.”
