Featured Guests:

  1. Dave Johnson, a Fellow with Campaign for America’s Future and a Senior Fellow with Renew California, discusses some good news for progressive activism witnessed in 2014, that he wrote about in his recent article, “Holiday Bright Spots for Progressives.”
  2. Arun Gupta, a co-founder of The Indypendent newspaper and the Occupied Wall Street Journal, is a widely published journalist. He assesses the growth and potential of the nationwide movement that’s risen up to challenge police violence in communities of color, as well as the political blowback recently seen from people like Pat Lynch, president of the New York City Police Department’s largest and most influential union.
  3. Steve Schnapp, Senior Education Coordinator with the group United for a Fair Economy, talks about the issues of growing economic inequality in the U.S., with a focus on a recent study by professors Gabriel Zucman and Emmanuel Saez, as well as new movements for a higher minimum wage and calls for changes in federal tax and labor policies.
  4. John Humphries, convener and organizer with the Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs discusses his group’s new legislative campaign to cap the residential fixed charge for electricity at $10 per month, after Connecticut’s largest electric utility CL&P requested a monthly increase to $25.50 and the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority, or PURA, granted a 20% increase from $16.00 to $19.25 per month.
