From Hope to Change: What Do We Do With 4 More Years?

1.  Do we have the audacity to stop hoping and start changing?


Prez Obama was sworn in on MLK day this year, forcing all sorts of talking heads to make connections that may or may not be true between the two.  But it got us at LTAI thinking.  What are people on the ground thinking about hope and change, and changing more than hoping?  If that didn't just confuse you, tune in as we talk to Phil Agnew (Dream Defenders), Desmond Meade (Florida Rights Restoration Coalition), Caitlin Breedlove (Southerners on New Ground) and Erika Andiola (Dream Action Coalition).  Plus, our own Shannan Reaze will give us a report back of the festivities at the inauguration.  Don't miss this.

2. "...through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall..."

Of all the things said during Obama's inauguration speech, that statement is considered among the most profound, especially for folks in the LGBT and Gay Rights Movement.  Tonight, we check in with our friends at Get Equal-Florida (Jarrod Scarbrough) about what actions will spring from these words.
