Policy with a Conscience- Angela Glover Blackwell

This week, Angela Glover Blackwell, executive director of PolicyLink and former Obama advisor, has a long history of using policy for progressive, radical, change. Blackwell says this is a moment to protect and resist, certainly, but also a time to return to the roots that are our local neighborhoods, our cities, our suburbs and build something better with them. People must make demands of the system if the system is to change, says Blackwell. Plus, an F-Word from Laura on why Putin's alleged crimes are a distraction from his real ones.
