This week I spoke with Dr. Anthea Butler (pictured above), professor at the University of Pennsylvania, about the role white evangelical Christians play in maintaining racist systems in the U.S. Girls Who Code founder Reshma Saujani shared why she started the Marshall Plan For Moms, to support working mothers trapped by poor child care systems and the Covid-19 financial fallout. Documentary filmmaker Loira Limbal talked about her movie “Through the Night,” which profiles families that run and utilize a 24-hour daycare center. I also welcomed Michelle Singletary, personal finance columnist at the Washington Post and author of the new book, “What To Do With Your Money When Crisis Hits,” and Nathalie Molina Niño, managing director at Known Holdings, to Sippin’ the Political Tea, for a roundtable dedicated to securing your finances post-Covid.
