MomsRising Radio this week: Double Rainbow - Inspired & Fired Up
January 17, 2015
It was the equivalent of a double rainbow in politics this week with big advancements in states and in our nation’s capitol. President Barack Obama announced groundbreaking new initiatives for sick days and paid family (maternity/paternity) leave; and states across the country ramped up their efforts to advance policies ranging from increasing the minimum wage, advancing sick days and paid family (maternity/paternity) leave, making childcare more affordable, and more. This show covers the latest developments… as well as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day ( #ReclaimMLK), food justice, and the Golden Globes too.
*Special guests include: Tina Tchen, Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff to the First Lady, Executive Director for the White House Council on Women and Girls; Gretchen Wright, PR Solutions; Monifa Bandeli, MomsRising; and Washington State Representative Ruth Kagi.
