What Americans truly want government to pay for with Brooke Adams

FSTV speaks with Brooke Adams about how most Americans support the Build Back Better plan and what most citizens in the United States want the government to pay for. 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.

FSTV’s Just Solutions features inspiring conversations with activists, community leaders, and others working to make our world a better place. We discuss the many challenges we are facing, while exploring the solutions emerging from the grassroots.
