Who Is Leading the Resistance?

Wednesday Jun 21, 2017 7:30 PM This is a past program

With Republicans in control of the White House and Congress, Democrats look ahead to 2018 and 2020 to take back power. From the streets to the internet, from town halls to the National Mall, progressive movements are taking fascinating new directions. Larry Cohen, chair of Bernie Sanders's Our Revolution, joins activist Erin Schrode and Indivisible organizer Zacharie Boisvert to discuss alternative visions and creative strategies fueling opposition movements. Moderated by Ian Masters
