Radio: The Leonard Lopate Show

I was a guest on WNYC’s The Leonard Lopate Show.

Journalist Sarah Jaffe, a Nation Institute Fellow, argues that we’re experiencing unprecedented political engagement and social activism in the U.S. In her book, Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt, she says that protests and grassroots organizing runs counter to claims of apathy and disconnection. She delves into protests across the country, including the Tea Party, the fight for a $15 minimum wage, Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street, and shows how they’re remaking American politics.
