There have been a rash of images that have gone viral in the wake of Ferguson, but the one that struck home to the MOMocrats depicted Florida student Frances Francois holding up a sign reading: "I Can't Believe I STILL Have to Protest This S**T!!"  Fifty years after Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law, we can't believe it, either. Michael Brown's killing by a Ferguson cop is not an isolated case -- unarmed people of color are killed by police in communities all over the country, the militarization of local forces is an ongoing and disturbing trend. MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills talk about the ongoing protests.

In the second half, Donna interviews California Assembly candidate Elizabeth Echols, the first of the MOMocrats series highlighting the campaigns of 2014 progressive women candidates.

Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
