Mari Manoogian is a Democratic member of the Michigan House of Representatives who gained notoriety in 2018 after flipping Michigan’s 40th district, which had been controlled by the Republican Party since at least the 1960s. Rep. Manoogian sat down with CivilNet to explain how to reach across the aisle in a polarized political atmosphere, discuss her advocacy for Armenian issues, and talk about her first-ever trip to Armenia.
