National Roundtable: Beyond Politics As Usual

We have a political roundtable, where our guests will talk about the upcoming Presidential election. We examine the breadth of people who are disillusioned with “politics as usual,” reflected in the strong following of both Trump and Sanders, and we question whether it’s possible to create a cross-racial progressive coalition. With: Bill Fletcher, Jr., Senior Scholar with the Institute for Policy Studies, editorial board member of, and co-author of The Indispensable Ally: Black Workers and the Formation of the Congress of Industrial Organizations, 1934-1941 and Solidarity Divided: The crisis in organized labor and a new path toward social justice; John Duda, co-founder of BASE and co-founder and collective member of Red Emma’s; and Zoe CarpenterThe Nation‘s Assistant Washington Editor.
