The Women’s March on January 21, 2017 was possibly the largest day of protest in American history, with marches happening in all 50 states, and on all 7 continents. In Episode 68, Christine and I talk about the march itself — and the energy and conversation (including push back) swirling after the march — using it as a backdrop for sharing eight strategies for respectfully communicating with people who don’t share your views.
