Paige Victoria, 23, of Cleveland, Ohio, holds up a sign in front of the White House on October 17, 2014 in Washington, D.C. Victoria is protesting while passing out slips of paper with heart stickers and a plea to Tom Frieden, Director of the CDC, to “Clarify how Ebola spreads. Everyone is confused.” She takes a moment away from her protesting to speak to News2share contributor and political commentator Jon-Christopher Bua about her mission as well as reasoning for wanting to prevent flights to the US from Western African.
