Join Democracy Now! co-host and former NY Daily News columnist Juan Gonzalez, NYC councilmember Brad Lander, civil rights and immigration supervisor at Make the Road New York Yaritza Mendez, and Philadelphia City councilperson Helen Gym, to dig into the power of local advocacy and activism.
Moderated by The Nation’s Lizzy Ratner.
Co-sponsored by The Nation magazine as part of its “Cities Rising” series.
