Less than two months ago a coalition of nearly 150 women came together to sign a letter that raised awareness about sexual misconduct by powerful players at California’s Capitol. Since that letter’s circulation, Assemblymembers Raul Boccanegra and Matt Dababneh have resigned following allegations of sexual misconduct, and Senator Tony Mendoza lost a key committee chairmanship.

Adama Iwu is the organizer behind the letter and now the President of the non-profit organization WeSaidEnough. She was recently featured in "Time Person of the Year 2017: The Silence Breakers." She joins lobbyist Pamela Lopez, the woman who spoke out against Matt Dababneh, in an update on the movement and where they hope it goes.
