The Future of Progressive Politics
The Democratic Party has been in period of soul searching since the 2016 Presidential primaries. Is it a party of the workers? Does it represent middle class Americans? Is it about good, data-driven government or revolutionary politics in a time of steep corporate influence? This panel of progressive elected officials represent a broad swath of the “big tent” that is the party. They represent a diversity of voices and perspectives among leading Democrats in Washington State. This discussion will talk about what it means to be a Democrat, the future of the Party in Washington State, and the role Washington State Democrats might play in an era of President Trump.
