Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner of MomsRising gears us up for the Women’s March this weekend, and talks about other ways that the Resistance continues!
On the #RADIO show this week we cover hope and organizing in the time of Trump and the importance of access to birth control and reproductive health services; Black Breastfeeding Week #BBW17; Maternal mortality and the alarmingly higher rate of deaths due to pregnancy related causes amongst Black women; and the fight to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner of Mom’s Rising joins us to share in our disgust for Donal Trump’s handling of the Nazi issue. It is clear that the alt-right movement is un-American and the “alt-left” isn’t a real movement and if it was it would be a very American movement. We also talk about a large conference call that is going to be happening on Sunday to discuss a plan of action to combat the white nationalists.
Kristian Rowe-Finkbeiner of Mom’s Rising joins us to talk about the rally that Mom’s Rising organized to tell congress that diversity is what makes this country strong.
DESCRIPTION: On this show we cover when, where and how to fight back against Trump’s regressive cabinet appointees and policies that hurt women, families, and our economy; what’s next for the press and journalism; the #WomensMarch; and the recent bomb threats to JCCs and how to talk with your children.

Moms Rising – On the radio show this week, we take stock of what actually happened in the Presidential election and where we need to go from here. From who voted how and why, to Russians rigging our election and an explosion of fake news sites and bot tweets, to why we need to stand against Trump’s appointees who are self-described “alt-right” white supremacists like Steve Bannon.
On the show this week Mom’s Rising Executive Director Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner and her guests discuss why it’s critical to our economy and to our communities to value caregiving, paid and unpaid, in our nation; cover the importance of everyone being able to vote; talk about the just released Black Lives Matter platform; and hear from two high school students about why and how they started Genders Equality Clubs at their high schools.
