Revisiting MLK's Struggle On Inauguration Day

On today's Your Call, we'll talk about moving forward during Obama’s second term. What does the inauguration mean to you? And in light of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, how can we get Obama to talk about and act on economic disparity?  What’s the work to be done for our democracy? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Lisa Marie Alatorre, from the Coalition on Homelessness, who work to defend homeless and low-income people from attacks on their rights and their persons.
