Monday, October 29, 2018: Kshama Sawant

Prophetic and Profound

We'll also talk with Seattle socialist city council member Kshama Sawant, whose election in 2014 paved the way for Seattle's becoming the first large US city to adopt a $15 minimum wage (with some exceptions). Sawant breaks down how she has achieved policy victories without sacrificing either personal integrity or movement accountability and outlines some strategies for current candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Presley to follow in her footsteps.
