ABOUT MAKE TROUBLE
From the time Richards was a girl, she had a front-row seat to observe the rise of women in American politics.. As a young woman, Richards worked as a labor organizer alongside women earning minimum wage and learned that those in power dont give it up without a fight. Now, after years of advocacy, resistance, and progressive leadership, she shares her story for the first timefrom the joy and heartbreak of activism to the challenges of raising kids, having a life, and making change, all at the same time.
