Micro Activism: With Joey Slamon

Joey Slamon is a lot of things. She’s a tv writer and producer (Arrested Development, Those Who Can’t, I’m Sorry). She’s a co-creator of the wildly successful live show Public School.

She’s the queen of Halloween. She’s one of my best friends. She’s a Syrian-American.

The recent Muslim ban and general climate toward refugees has both terrified and activated her. We got together to discuss our experiences at the Women’s March in L.A., what we’re doing to make good on the promises we made that day, and how we handle the stress of the current administration in VERY different ways.
