This week we’re discussing the upcoming Atlanta March for Social Justice and Women on January 21st. We sat down to talk with Janel Green, one of the organizers of the march, about how she got involved and how you can participate. We’re also giving you a preview of this year’s legislative session. It looks like it will be a lot of issues we’re quite familiar with: religious liberty, campus carry, and education.
