"The march Saturday will not change Donald Trump but it could change you, your involvement, your families' opinions and the midterm elections. Don't sit back and rely on the government to improve the quality of your life, rely on yourself to improve the quality of the government. Marching is the easy part: It's what happens next that can change everything."

Dear team Trump, 'alternative facts' are lies

"My 101-year-old grandma fought for women’s rights with the same fierce determination that led her to take driving lessons on her 95th birthday. 18-wheeler truck driving lessons.
