On January 6 I spoke with Mary Jo Ebert and Ben Gabel by phone, and in the studio Windsor organizer/activist Pat Papadeas organizing as part of the Canadian Women's March. Ben Gabel serves as the Director of Service and Social Justice Ministry at the Birmingham Unitarian Church, and Mary Jo Ebert is program chair for service and social justice at the church as well.

We spoke about cross border solidarity, universal values in the face of extremist reactions, and providing as many access points of participation as possible for as many as possible for this historic event. Women's March (US), Women's March Canada
