Connections: Local activists get ready for the presidential inauguration

Several busloads of Rochesterians are planning to go to Washington, D.C. next month after the inauguration of Donald Trump. They’ll join the national Women’s March demonstration on January 21st.

We speak with the man helping to organize some of those buses, who says he’s been moved by how intense the interest has been. And we talk about how they’re trying to train demonstrators to engage people they meet – sometimes in tense situations – to help create productive dialogue.
