Today in #GirlPower, Chelsea Handler explained why it’s important to get political, especially right now, and it’s one of the most important things we heard all weekend. We were so proud when we saw Handler at the Women’s March, and her emotional response to the election results was way too relatable. Now, we’ve learned that Chelsea Handler gets political for all the right reasons.

TBH, why Chelsea Handler gets political is so, so inspiring, and SO important.

At the end of the day, Handler explained, she feels responsible to those more marginalized than she is.

In the video, she continues, explaining that she takes pride in the fact that our country is meant to be accepting and welcoming to people from all over, and she doesn’t want to let us lose that.

Yes, yes, and more yes! TBH, we’re so proud of Handler. It can be hard to talk politics 24/7. It’s draining, it’s not fun, and it can be straight up miserable. But it’s something we just can’t afford to ignore, especially not now! We’ve got to find the right balance between self care and fighting the good fight, and we believe it’s possible for us to get this all figured out if we just work together.
