Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast: Increasing The Pressure On Rahm Emanuel, Funding Our Own Movement

Should Emanuel resign or will he be forced out of office in the wake of the Laquan McDonald police shooting and the efforts by city officials to cover-up the brutal murder?

These activists have bills too. They are fighting for justice, but have to eat, send kids to school, buy clothes, and just live. The bottom line is this: We should look up in 24 hours and see many of us greatly assisting these groups, it’s time to #FundTheMovement
