Shadow Politics with Senator Michael Brown and Maria Sanchez

Guest, Charles Hicks, Founder/Director of the DC Black History Celebration Committee, Community Activist

This week our guest is Andria Thomas, a mom from DC who organized a community action group in Capitol Hill while on maternity leave called "Resist and Rise"  - the key objective is defending DC's local laws from Congressional encroachment. The group, which is already over 100, plans to tell members "hands off DC". Andria lives in Capitol Hill with her husband Aaron and their daughter Maggie (4 years) and Mina (4 months)!
