Movement Politics: Looking Ahead to the 2022 Midterms

There is a lot at stake in the 2022 mid-term elections. 34 senate seats and 435 House seats will be on the ballot, along with countless races for local and statewide positions, playing out all across the country. People’s Action is working to elect candidates that reflect the real-life experiences and identities of everyday voters. Their Rise Up 2022 strategy seeks to boost progressive power by organizing in competitive races to flip Republican-held swing seats. Brooke Adams, director of movement politics at People’s Action joins us to talk about the deep canvassing techniques they’re using to engage voters around progressive policies and to engage with voters who are typically shut out of politics and ignored by the Democratic establishment.
