Black Women Get It Done

This week on the podcast, Janaye Ingram and Alencia Johnson discuss the role of black women in the resistance movement.

Michele and Igor are joined by Janaye Ingram, director of national partnerships at Airbnb and a national organizer for the Women’s March, and Alencia Johnson, director of constituency communications at Planned Parenthood, to discuss the role of black women in the resistance movement, the hard conversations about race that happened throughout planning of the Women’s March on Washington, and why black women are a powerful constituency that progressive lawmakers should be looking at for support.
