A Democratic Vision and Policy Agenda for the Next Generation of State Leaders

A Democratic Vision and Policy Agenda for the Next Generation of State Leaders

Session Type(s): Panel

Starts: Thursday, Oct. 7 1:00 PM (Eastern)

Ends: Thursday, Oct. 7 2:00 PM (Eastern)

We’re living amid accelerating and intersecting crises – racial injustice and the police state, public health and COVID-19, economic domination and insecurity, and climate change. These crises compel us to examine our society. What policies should progressives fight for in the states to avoid a return to “normal?” What vision should we champion to inspire others to join our movement? Learn about a concrete democratic vision and state policy agenda from the next generation of leaders changing the narrative and pushing the envelope with their ideas: worker-owned cooperatives, restorative justice, tenant unions, and democracy vouchers.
