Join us Saturday, July 18th to hear from three groups working to elect candidates for the 99%.
Socialist Alternative's Kshama Sawant won 95,000 votes in the Seattle City Council election in November 2013. Kshama was the first openly Socialist city council member elected in almost 100 years. This November Kshama is up for reelection in what Chris Hedges has called "one of the most important elections in the country this year." Come hear from Michael who just recently returned from a week of volunteering for the campaign in Seattle.
Bernie Sanders is running for the Democratic nomination for President and has a long history of running successful independent campaigns. Hear from a leading member in the Bay Area People for Bernie group about Bernie’s past success and what they’re doing to ensure his continued success.
Richmond Progressive Alliance was up against Chevron's smear campaign this past November and prevailed. Their experience is the roadmap to success for grass roots Bernie supporters. The RPA candidates were outspent 20:1 in campaign ads. It was door to door, heart to heart communication with friends and neighbors that won the vote
Join us Saturday July 18, 2pm to hear a panel discussion on independent politics in Seattle, Bernie Sanders history of running as an independent and the work the Richmond Progressive Alliance in defeating Chevron this past election!
