Michele is joined by special guest host Emily Tisch Sussman, the campaign director at CAP, as well as a panel of powerful women who are leading protest movements across the country: Paola Mendoza, artistic director of the Women’s March; Tiffany D. Loftin, head of African American outreach and policy at the National Education Association; and Anisha Singh, senior organizing director at Generation Progress, CAP’s youth organizing arm. The women discuss their disappointment over the decision by Senate Democrats to blink first in the standoff over Dreamers, the theme of the second Women’s March; holding politicians accountable through organizing and resistance; and finding redemption for those accused of sexual harassment in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
