Lizz Winstead, Abortion Access Front’s founder and chief creative officer, is one of the top political satirists working today.
As co-creator and head writer of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” she forever changed the way people get their news.
In 2004, Winstead also co-founded Air America Radio, while also co-hosting “Unfiltered” every morning with the amazing Rachel Maddow and Hip Hop legend, Chuck D.
