After retiring from her environmental law career, Mary Jo Sheeley spent much of her newfound free time volunteering for the Hillary Clinton campaign.

She marched with hundreds of thousands of other women in D.C., then got together with small groups of other activists to talk about what to do next. “It’s so clear what we need to do,” Sheeley said. “We need to look at what is going on locally.
