Sen. Sanders wants to speak with progressives like us, and discuss prospects for a “political revolution” to open the electoral process to a new progressive coalition.

Sen. Sanders believes such a movement would include: “trade unionists and working families, our minority communities, environmentalists, young people, the women’s community, the gay community, seniors, veterans, the people who in fact are the vast majority of the American population.”

John Nichols, (Nation Magazine, the MSNBC Contributor, author of ten books about politics and media) will interview the Senator, then open discussion to include our questions and views.

This event will be open to the public, sponsored by The Nation magazine, and co-sponsored by Progressive Democrats of America and WHMP Radio. Admission is free, but seating is limited. To attend, you must RSVP.

Progressive Democrats of America

Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country. We seek to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites-with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interests. As a grassroots PAC operating inside the Democratic Party, and outside in movements for peace and justice, PDA played a key role in the stunning electoral victories of November 2006 and 2008. Our inside/outside strategy is guided by the belief that a lasting majority will require a revitalized Democratic Party built on firm progressive principles.

For over two decades, the party declined as its leadership listened more to the voices of corporations than those of Americans. PDA strives to rebuild the Democratic Party from the bottom up-from every congressional district to statewide party structures to the corridors of power in Washington, where we work arm in arm with the Congressional Progressive Caucus. In just a couple of years PDA and its allies have shaken up the political status-quo on issues from ending the Iraq war, voter rights, protecting Social Security, a full employment economy, national healthcare and economic justice.
