"It is so much better to do something than to do nothing!"  On this show we uncover what's going on with kids and access to food; hear the latest about the 49 public school closures in Chicago; learn about what started a key leader on the path to leadership when she was five years old; and find out how a small group of women took on Facebook's policies about sexist imagery and won.  And throughout the show we cover how all the little "somethings" that people do engaging in our democracy, add up into a big something, something!
