I had the privilege to speak with Betsey about the upcoming Women’s March on Washington. Betsey knowing how important this event will be; spearheaded an effort to coordinate a bus for people wishing to travel to Washington DC for the March. Betsey had such a response that there is a current waiting list for the bus, we do discuss other options for travel and how you can find a bus from your area to the march. This episode is full of information and we discuss important work that will happen after the March is over. Click on the links below for more information and how you can volunteer in your area.
