Elections 2018 – The Progressive Path Forward

Free Speech TV and Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) present Elections 2018 — The Progressive Path Forward: Deep Grassroots.

The second episode of our monthly election special will premiere Thursday, March 15 at 8:30 p.m. ET. Follow Free Speech TV on Twitter and use the hashtag #ProgressivePath18 to join the panelists for a live Twitter chat during the premiere broadcast.

Watch the debut episode, The Struggle for the Soul of the Democratic Party, here.

Donald Trump’s radical presidency, and his repeated attacks on immigrants, people of color, women and other marginalized groups, quickly led to a groundswell of protests and passionate progressive activism.  This movement is resulting in many first-time candidates running for office at every level. Are these new insurgent organizations, activists, candidates, and organizers the future of the Democratic Party?

Deep Grassroots is moderated by Dr. Christina Greer, associate professor of Political Science at Fordham University and author of Black Ethnics: Race, Immigration, and the Pursuit of the American Dream. 

Panelists include Jane Kleeb, chairperson of the Nebraska Democratic Party:

Winnie Wong, a radical media-maker, founding organizer of Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Sandy, and co-founder of The People for Bernie:

And Nathan Rubin, founder of Millennial Politics, a member of the executive committee of the Central Brooklyn Independent Democrats, and a concerned citizen who hopes to inspire others to get involved in our democracy:

This episode also features an interview with Steve Phillips, founder of Democracy in Color, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, and author of the New York Times bestseller Brown is the New White: How the Demographic Revolution Has Created a New American Majority.
