About Us

Forget about getting mad or getting even, this is a political show about how we are moving forward. Movement building pros Gina Christo and Wilnelia Rivera helped get Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-7) elected and know how deep democracy works when it centers the people we usually see at the margins. Each month they look at dumpster fires happening on the political ground and highlight the women, queer folk, and POC fighting the good fight and winning key battles across the country.
