In the news this week By Team ATPB

With the state of current affairs in the US and around the world, we're staying up to date on as much news as we can. Like many of you, we devour everything that is published on the Trump administration in an effort to keep informed about its horrible policies and so that we can share them with everyone we know (read about them every month in Nia's "F*ck Donald Trump" series).

And, please share any articles that catch your attention, because sharing information is one of the most important things you can do at this moment.
