The Democrats are fired up about this history-making presidential election like never before. The media and pundits are having a feast about what they choose to report and how they frame the message. The direction of our country is at a critical crossroads, with the choice of Commander in Chief more crucial than ever. You’ll hear about:

  • how the Commonweal Institute supports the modern progressive movement
  • the use of “liberal” and “progressive” changing over the years
  • ways the campaigns are evolving and what the influences are
  • recognizing that the “center” of politics shifts slowly and in cycles
  • the Democracy Alliance and Rob Stein’s important contributions
  • Commonweal’s ideas and programs to help you get involved
  • the Progressive Roundtable – its role in building a progressive infrastructure
