Finding The Courage To Lead

At CAP’s 2018 Ideas Conference, Michele and Igor talk to Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood and author of New York Times best-seller “Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead.” Richards talks about the importance of progressives uniting around issues of reproductive justice; her mother’s political career; and her meeting with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner after the inauguration. Then, CAP Senior Fellow Jocelyn Frye sits down with Valerie Jarrett, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, at the United States of Women conference in Los Angeles to discuss the galvanizing efforts for women’s rights and what change over time truly looks like.
