14. Batlight Activism (w/Tamara Lefcowitz & Randie Pearson of United Steelworkers Union)


Politics & voting & run-ins with the Secret Service, OH MY!

In today’s pre-election episode, Karen & Katie talk with the incredible Tamara Lefcowitz & Randie Pearson, two members of the United Steelworkers Union, about the ‘batlight tour’ that has been sweeping the nation. Ever since September, Tamara, Randie, & two other female Union members have been partaking in a road show where they shine massive ‘Biden Harris 2020’ lights onto buildings. Their effort gained massive attention in mid-October when a light was seen projected onto Chicago’s Trump Tower, above the TRUMP sign (Twitter blew up within minutes).

In today’s episode, Tamara & Randie offer a behind-the-scenes look at the ‘batlight tour,’ explain their harrowing run-ins with the Secret Service, & offer advice on how to stay active in politics well after election day.
