Getting Into Good Trouble
How can we stay present, focused, and engaged in these chaotic times? One answer: show up! Alicia and Ai-jen discuss why protesting is a powerful action—and a great way to get inspired and connect with your community. The ladies reflect on their first protest experiences (and arrests!), and offer practical advice for protesting, including what to bring, what to wear, and the ideal speaker-to-song ratio. You’ll also hear voices from Jane Fonda’s Fire Drill Friday climate protests in Washington D.C., as women from across the country explain their motivations for putting their bodies where their values are.
