Into Action: Special Report from Women's March Sign Making Party from Rising Up With Sonali on Vimeo.


BACKGROUND: A major pop-up Art exhibit and social justice conference in Los Angeles has attempted to capture the frustration and resistance of people over this past year. The event called Into Action began on the weekend of Martin Luther King Day through to the Women's March on Saturday. We've been bringing you coverage from Into Action and today we'll begin with a special report from a Women's March sign-making party that took place on Thursday. Dozens of women joined one another making signs by hand, side-by-side as a young female DJ played music. Here are some of the voices of those women a couple of days before they marched on Saturday.
