Elisa Parker Exclusive Interview with Bob Bland, Women’s March Co-Organizer

“Taking action doesn’t just mean tweeting, it doesn’t mean just creating a Facebook post, it has to be more than that.  We have to get from behind our computer screens and get out and be a part of our communities and make a difference.  The first things that popped into my head was we should do a march on Washington on Inauguration weekend.”
