I met Michelle Harris on a grey fall morning in a tiny Capitol Hill coffee shop where the baristas pulled espresso shot after espresso shot—their thumps and wushes threatening to ruin my recording all the while. I was immediately struck by Michelle's gentle manner and nimble sense of humor. As we talked, however, I began to detect a fury just below the surface, and an unwavering clarity of vision. We all wish our cities—our countries—would do better by their most vulnerable populations, but Michelle manifests her vision for society through action. Basically, she lives the way she thinks the world should work. It was great get inside her head for a couple of hours, and to share it in this new Q&A for Seattle Met.
