#NJRR Live: Struggling To Stay Heard

This week, as always, #NJRR​ Live is coming at you from the grassroots. This week, Brian and Chris will meet with Tiffany Kaszuba, founder of the NJ Violet. Tiffany started her blog after she dropped out of the race for New Jersey Congress following repeated and unaddressed harassment by a fellow Democrat and scores of others who didn’t seem to care or covered it up. Shouldn’t more people be paying attention and working towards real changes? Let’s talk to an activist/advocate who’s been through it firsthand to find out.
