Rising Up With Sonali

Lawmakers Fear Democracy in Action at Town Halls

Americans are exercising their democratic power to protect their healthcare, much to the dismay of Republican lawmakers intent on repealing the Affordable Care Act. On today’s show, we’ll speak with Sarah Chaisson Warner, the Campaign Director for the Family Economic Security Program at People’s Action. And, indigenous filmmaker Paulette Moore joins us to discuss her powerful short film, The Spirit of Standing Rock. Plus, journalist, historian, and organizer L.A. Kauffman has a new book out called Direct Action: Protest and the Reinvention of American Radicalism, that couldn’t have been released at a better time. Kauffman will explore the history of past movements and the lessons that we can draw on to resist the Trump agenda.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
