Real Talk with Real Moms: A Brighter Future

A couple of weeks ago I was on a plane to New York, two days after election day.  I was about to send out a reminder email for our latest installment of this series and nothing seemed more relevant than the conversations that were happening around the outcome of the election.  It seemed hard to write (or think) about anything else.  Not politics exactly, but what it looks like to fight injustice.
