Sekela Coles (D-Upper Darby), Inder Baines (R-Upper Darby), Sybil Kendrick (D-Upper Darby) & Jennifer Booker (D-Upper Darby) joined students from all around Philadelphia in an open discussion regarding present day politics. The discussion took place at the Young Constituents Rittenhouse Square Field Office at Benjamin’s Desk in Philadelphia.

Sekela Coles, Upper Darby Councilwoman, expressed the difficulties women may come across when assuming positions of power, emphasizing that women in all industries face similar impediments. Coles mentioned her political activism dating back a number of years, enlightening students of her work on the campaign of President Barack Obama.

Jennifer Booker, Delaware County Democratic Party, spoke about the importance of involving young people in present day politics. Booker emphasized the importance of getting additional millennials to get more involved. Booker gave students a tour on the background of the democratic party.

Inder Baines gave students a background on his political career, stating he got involved roughly fifteen years ago. Currently, Inder is on the board of the Upper Darby Library & is extremely involved with the community. Baines explained that he is more active in local politics – given its importance and impact in the community, especially with small businesses and everyday life. Baines ran against Margo Davidson, who was evicted from her campaign office for failure to pay rent and faced problems after her son ran from police & was arrested for distributing heroin.

Sybil spoke about her experience as a committeewoman & her roots in politics.

The open discussion brought students of all political beliefs together in addition to promoting the new film “Miss Sloane” available in theaters everywhere this Friday, December 9. The film stars Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alison Pill, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jake Lacy and Sam Waterston. Tomorrow, State Representative Vanessa Brown is scheduled to appear from Harrisburg at an advanced screening of the film in Philadelphia along with other state representatives throughout the state.

In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. Known equally for her cunning and her track record of success, she has always done whatever is required to win. But when she takes on the most powerful opponent of her career, “The Gun Lobby”, she finds that winning may come at too high a price.
